The family of Buck Kitcheyan, Jr., also known as J.J., wish to say thank you to all of you who made our difficult time a little easier. A special thanks to Phil and Lissie at Lamont Mortuary of Globe for your care and compassion. Thanks to Rainbow Flowers and Gift Shop, the flowers were beautiful. Thank you to the World Evangelism Revival Center, Pastor Fernando Pechuli for conducting the funeral service with your beautiful sermon and for your thoughts and prayers. Thank you to the tribal council who gave support, especially, Vice-Chairman Dr. John Bush, Gilson Wash Councilman Simon Hooke, Bylas Council, Alicia Cadmus and Jonathan Kitcheyan and the White Mountain Tribal Chairman Ronald Lupe for your support at our home. Your presence was welcoming and thoughtful. Our family deeply shows appreciation to Carol Pechuli Lewis for being the MC at the wake and to all the churches that came out to sing and gave encouraging words to the family. Thank you to the people who showed their support by staying with us at the wake and a deep appreciation to the Pallbearers who cared and loved J.J.
To the many people who came to our home during this time, and there are too many to name individually, thank you for being there and helping wherever you could with food, flowers, monetary donations, the woods and greens, paint for the home, your vehicles, the cooks, the men and women who labored and were there all week. Your time, generosity, and most importantly your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated. Words cannot express how grateful the family feels with all your help and support.
We are deeply touched to see so many people care for J.J. and showed their support during this time. Itís been a tough time for our mom, Geri Wiley Kitcheyan, the siblings, and the family, but with all your help and continuous support and Godís care, we will make it.
On behalf of the late Buck Kitcheyan, Jr. family, thank you for your kind expression of sympathy on our recent loss. Your thoughts and prayers will be with us eternally.
Mr. & Mrs. Terry David Kitcheyan
