Sharing memories and reminiscing on his favourite times, Scott Thomas will gather with friends, family and strangers today as they grieve the loss of his son, Evan.

Scott is a former Moose Jaw Warrior and was inducted in their hall of fame. His world came crashing down just over a week ago when the news of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash hit the air. His son was one of the 16 lives lost that tragic afternoon as the team made their way to a hockey game.

He says the outpouring of support has helped but the conversations are always difficult at the start. "They don't have the words and I tell everyone that there are no right words but at some point we have to talk about it and we have to move forward and we're starting to do that now."

Funerals and memorials for those lost in the crash started last week across the prairies with a memorial for Evan schedule for Monday, April 16th in Saskatoon.

"It's going to be a wonderful event. It's going to be tragic. It's going to be heart wrenching and it's going to be brutally honest." said Thomas. "In the end, I hope there's a message of inspiration and love there because that's the kind of kid that Evan was."

A large crowd is expected for the service that's being held at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, able to hold 15,000 people. The city of Saskatoon has confirmed that transit service will be available to get people to and from the service.

Evan was just 18 years old, playing in his rookie season with the Broncos. 16 people died in the crash that saw a semi collided with the team bus and on the weekend, officials with the Saskatchewan Health Authority released that 10 people remain in hospital with two still in critical condition.
