Foster child dies after concerns - Parents bury baby boy

Standing in front of a tiny white casket, a mother and father hugged each other and reluctantly said goodbye to their baby boy.

Janelle McKenzie and Winston Black buried their 10-month-old son Friday following a funeral service at the reserve hall, located about 40 kilometres north of Prince Albert. Flowers, cards and pictures of Richie Spencer Earl McKenzie-Black sat on a table near the casket at the front of the hall.

Nearby, some of Richie's clothes, blankets and books were spread across another table.
