Our family will honor our father’s wishes that he not be kept alive through the use of life support systems.

This evening our father Dennis James Banks will begin his final journey home to join our ancestors.

Wophila! Miigwech! for all the prayers you’ve shown to our father and our family over the last several weeks. We are deeply grateful for all the support.

We will post information once we’ve made final arrangements.

In Spirit of Our Ancestors
