It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tom Dennis. He went missing while mushroom picking and was found after two weeks of searching.
A Thank You from Marilyn Morrison and family:
Thank you for helping in the search for my dad to the Search and Rescue teams from the Bulkley Valley, Houston, Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert, Prince George, Nechako Valley, Fort St. James, Central Cariboo, South Fraser and Campbell River. Also, to the New Hazelton RCMP, numerous volunteers from local and far away Indigenous communities, Canim Lake, Lhtako Dene, Kitwancool, Gitsegukla, Gitanmaax, Hagwilget, Kispiox, Glen Vowell, Witset, and more. The elders and community members that fed us, kept us strong, that helped search, comfort us and prayed every day. Also, to the community and helping people from Gitwangak, BC.
I apologize if I have forgotten anyone for their help, care, sharing and prayers that helped find dada and help us though this.
Sadly, we found our elder Tom. Our biggest love and prayers continue for his family, our clan and community. I’m so proud of Cody Wedlidi Merriman, Sakej Ward and Michael Tol for your expertise in finding him. I’m grateful that you’ve helped the family put him to rest. Let’s keep him in our hearts and minds as he makes his journey home.
