Saying goodbye during Covid-19
Due to Covid-19 guidelines, community will remain at designated areas and say your farewell from the curbside. We ask that everyone practice physical distancing and ensure the safety of the family in mourning. We understand how difficult this is for community, but we must remain diligent.
MIB Council and Admin acknowledge that this is not ideal, nor is it consistent with the traditional ways we come together to remember loved ones. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the ways we gather. We are doing our best to ensure members can still uphold cultural practices while maintaining everyone’s safety.
With the greatest of love and respect,
the Grant/Wilson Family
