    Someone suggested to me that it would be a good idea to set up a bank account close to the Dreavers home where whoever wanted to could give a donation to the family. Some of us have been in similar situations, but no where close to the tragedy that befell this family. We can only imagine the costs incurred with burial expenses, transporting the injured to the wake & burial, and numerous other costs. Wow, this will drain the family financially as well as emotionally. They are a proud family. No way would they appeal for financial help. But, I also know that they would appreciate the help if those that want to give are very sincere in our giving. Let's face it, most of us would like to be there to pay our respects and to give emotional support to the family, but are not able to attend.

    This is a good way.

    Please, if there is someone - a family friend - in the Big River area who could set up an account for the Dreaver family, do so. Inform us here of the name of the bank and account # , so that we may assist the family in this way.

    We want to help.

    Just know that like everyone told me last year when my dad died. God has another angel in his choir but now the angel is singing the songs!

    SOME INFO. ON FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR 'PERCY DREAVER'

    This is too sad to type..........and hard to it hold together. I had just got off the phone with the family there in Saskatoon. They were appreciative to all the responses we have been receiving thru Powwows.com, and the many phone calls of sympathy.

    Harvey said that his whole family were in the room early this morning as they watched his beloved brother slip away from them. All 13 brothers, sisters, and his wife Serina were all able to say there good byes as they slowly watch his heart rate fade away. It is a touching yet sad feeling, but yesterday they let his wife be transported to lay in the bed next to him (Percy). It was sad cause she could barely move to hold his hand knowing that both of her arms were broken, but gained enough strength to hold him. Harvey and his family are trying to hold themselves together and be strong.

    The Dreaver family are still making the decisions on how they will be handling the funeral arrangements. But for now this is all that was said : The viewing will start tonite @ 12a.m. until Saturday January 12th @ 12 noon, where they will be setting his soul to rest.
    He will be layed out @ The Band Hall in Whitefish, SK.

    Note: these arrangements may change, but I will do my best to keep everyone posted.

    Thanks again, for all the support to the Dreaver family...........

    Keep On Singing Everyone

    I told Percy recently that he was one of my favorite singers. He thanked me for telling him that. He was an inspiration to me Delia and to many. Condolences going out to the Dreaver family and the Whitefish Juniors Singers, and all the singers that Percy came to sing with, and all that sang with him. He was the one there, at the rounddances. He sang alot of songs for people. He did a lot. God we all pray for the family. :Angel2
    Delia , Brian, Irvin Waskewitch and all the singers from Spirit Whistle(Old Red Bull)
    Thank Your Percy for always being there, for your singing, for your songs, for your inspiration.. Whitefish Jrs, :o (AKAMAYMOK) Let his spirit live on in his songs
    Be missed more than words can say! Tapwe!

    I am very saddened to hear of the loss of such a fine, accomplished and established singer such as Percy. There are many hearts and prayers here on the East Coast of Indian Country who are extended to the Dreaver Family. I, myself, can remember hearing the name Dreaver name so many times as a younger singer. Although his physical presence will be missed here on Earth, he is with the Creator now and his Spirit will still live on through the beat of the Drum!

    SAD DAY FOR A POPULAR SINGER

    I remember Percy at Schemitzun one year he was at the drum watching men's traditional and he was so into it he was literally dancing at the drum. We recorded him on video tape, when we got home we all sat around the T.V. and showed him. We all laughed. My sister asked him if he had the urge to dance would he ? He said " If I could get a decent outfit I would."

    I thank now he is dancing above us watching over his family. He will always be in our hearts and thoughts. I have many memories of him and the boys always acting silly and just being happy. And I will always remember that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
