    My deepest condolence to the whole family. This is a huge loss for our community because people relied on him for so many things like weddings, funerals, spiritual healing and ceremonies. He was a man of tremendous strength as he carried on helping people despite his own loss of family members. He has earned his eternal rest in heaven. God be with you all. Tina

  8. When I read this, I immediately had memories of powwow moments. Chiniki Lake singers. And I also had a flashback of the father. Yes indeed, a true warrior has finished his journey here with us all. He will now travel to the home of eternal life.

    At this time, I express our deepest sympathy to Velma and all the family. May the blessings of courage, strength and comfort be put upon you from our heavenly creator.

    Donna, my mom Mary E Rain and family.
