Hello Tribe and Friends,
Our Prayers are with the family. Please continue to pray for the family. We will miss our Chief.
The service is private and that is totally understandable in this time we are in.
According to a post by a family member on FB, I share the following information they shared.
People can make a donation in his name to Shriner's Hospital Tampa, FL 2900 Rocky Point Drive, Tampa FL, 33607 website is donate.lovetotherescue.org
phone is 855-401-4897
Children's Hospitals were something that was very dear to Chiefs heart. He had shared that with us as a tribe last year.
You can send flowers and contact Martha's Florist in Bushnell Florida, to be delivered to Beyers Funeral Home of Bushnell Florida
This is the link to share, I have copied and also posted for you to read without going to the link if you need to.
