Miigwech/ Thank you from the Family of Donald "Dudie" May

The passing of our father, son, brother and relative was very shocking and very saddening. It is times like this when the care and concern of others help us and give us strength to cope. We would like to say thank you to everyone for the kind words, the stories, the food, the cards, flowers and monetary donations, everyone who took the time to come and sit with our family during this difficult time, your presence did not go unnoticed and we are very thankful. To the families that traveled from other states and long distances to be there, thank you. Thank you to the Tribal Programs who sent condolences and floral arrangements, to all of Dudie's friends and fellow bikers, and fellow electricians your presence was very much appreciated and helpful.
