Though Willow is very close to my age and I might not know her personally, but her and her family have been role models to me and others across powwow country. My family and I send our prayers and love to you and your family during these hard times.
Sincerely the Narcomey family

I was reading some of the threads and was just wondering if Willow got to go to her husbands funeral? Poor girl, Willow God will get you thru this. It might take some time to realize the reasons. Its been about 8 months since my moms passing and I sorta realize why. PM me if I can help you with anything.

closer to home and that Willow would be able to attend Daryl's services

Peace.

Prayers for strength and understanding

Willow and family, our families are continually praying for your health and will continue to pray for some understanding to help ease your mind. Daryl and your baby girl are together and will always be there for you in spirit thus you will be strong with the Creators help as well as from your loved ones that are in heaven. Brandon and Lee be strong, our thoughts and prayers are with you all as well. I will keep reading the threads as well because we know how strength from other families will help the healing process. May the Creator watch over you all.

Rainbow Azure and family

Arrow How is Young Willow doing and her baby?

some folks got home from idaho recently, saying they had atteneded services. We just had a loss too, my sister in law. i want to know that Willow and her baby are okay! The pictures are so beautiful that are posted here at pow wows, what an exceptional and beautiful legacy. Thank you Willow, for hanging in there. We still say a prayer for you and yours. I mentioned your names at a prayer ceremony we had in these parts last weekend, to keep you in mind! Much strength to you! A "virtual" hug to Willow, and those around her. Beauty all around you, get well soon! The world of pow wow has acquired a whole new color, the beautiful shades of life you added to the rainbow of this pow wow trail!

Willow:
You are an inspirational woman who has made a difference in people's lives in one way or another. We are all looking at you as a strong woman, mother, sister, friend....The whole powwow country is praying for you and people are even examing how powwows are run. There is a thread on here discussing the importance of ending powwows at a reasonable time. Even though what happened is a sad tragedy we need to stay positive and look at the positive aspects.

I lost my cousin last week and because of what you went through, I want you to know I was able to be strong and handle it. You will always be in my prayers. I hope you and your son have a quick recovery and a blessed life.

This is WIllow....I don't know what to say or even how to express the gratitude for all the prayers and support that have come to us....it is hard right now..I still feel like I am in a nightmare, sometimes I dream of Daryl or my baby and when I do it hurts to wake, I feel as if I am waking to a nightmare....we were excited about moving home to Idaho, we wanted many good things for our lives, we cared greatly for our children, I even prayed EVERYDAY...right now I quit asking God "WHY?"....I know I will be blindly searching for an answer...I still cannot comprehend that my family is broken, my heart has been ripped...I try to be strong but still have a hard time each new day....everytime I see my son ..I see my husband or my daughter Maliah..everytime I wake up and have to taken out of bed or carried in a wheelchair to the porch, or taken to the bathroom...I wonder if my life was all dream until now....I cannot even walk, play or hold my son...it hurts..
but knowing that my son is a part of Daryl and a sign of our love helps me each day..I know that I am to be strong for him..he was wide awake and saw all of our bodies strewn across the hiway.....I comfort him the best I can when he gets flashbacks...he cries for his dad and lil sis everyday......but you know all the prayers are what are helping us each new day...thank you all....

the eyewitness described that the truck clipped us after we swerved away......I kept wishing that we didn't leave the powwow that night...Daryl was so excited to be getting a new outfit, and we had a dance special planned...

we felt like we just HAD to get home..We were so excited for our local powwow
.he was wide awake..his daughter just woke up and was munching on cookies...we were all so amazed at our luck at Rocky Boy, we were chatte4ring happily, snuggling, hugging....but it was like GONE, in a flash we went from being the happiest people in the world w/ plans for our future, than CRUSHED .....either way HAD we worn our seatbelts or not there would have been deaths...the opposite people would have died...my son was knocked into a small space and remained in the truck..my body was curled, my little sister was thrown 75ft....we are all alive...my son and sister were sitting where the truck clipped us...their seats were completly crushed.
..

I encourage you all to travel safely, don't even go 5 miles over as we were
.....just rest, sleep..wear your seatbelts.......live life to the fullest, be kind, be grateful to spend every moment you can w/ your loved ones...dance for those who cannot....This is the first time I read all of your kind words..thank you..I will try to be strong, I will cherish every word from you all...every moment I had w/ my husband and daughter, every moment I now live......my son....I used to tease that I would dance till my legs fell off....well now my legs don't work, I am in a wheelchair..and I am thankful that I did dance and hopefully..that I will dance again someday...you know..I was a "HAIR" from becoming paralyzed for life...and I feel Daryl saved me..we loved one another's dancing....BUT all I can do now is focus on healing and doing the best I can for my son....
AGAIn thank you all the help is deeply appreciated and I in turn will pray for you all...may god bless you and yours......THANK YOU all for being there...

Willow, many of us have been angry and asking God 'why', too. But there are no easy answers. All I can think of to comfort you at all is that even in death, the love that you and Daryl had for each other lives on. Some of us never know the kind of love you shared: best friends, lovers, soulmates...hold fast to that, Lady. Perhaps right now is too soon for you or your son to wade through the emotional and psychological trauma; it may take more time than learning to walk again, even longer than living without physical pain. But Daryl's love for you is so strong I feel it in your message. When those images come into your mind, reach beyond...it won't be easy...but reach beyond, remember his smile, his happiness...as you mention here talking about his excitement about his new regalia, your new home. Try and focus on the beauty. Perhaps there is something of his, and your daughter's that when you or your son feel despair, something you can touch and hold. Take it in your hands and remember the love, let it wash over you and give you strength. If you need to talk, talk. If your son needs to talk, let him talk. Sometimes those of us who love you may feel helpless and afraid of adding to your pain and hurt, so we may avoid mentioning your baby, your husband. It won't be because we don't care; it's because we care. You may need to tell us it is okay to talk about them; that you would like for us to share our happiest memories of them. Bottom line is, you do what you need to do to get through this. No one can tell you how to grieve or when to be done with it. Take your time; your many friends are here for you and your family. Our prayers will continue for your healing, your son's healing and your sister's. Much love to you...

Thanks for sharing with us here.

Willow, I appreciate your response and the strength it took to discuss these images of dissaster and final moments with those you have lost.

Please everyone reading here, heed Willows advice and cherish your lives as well as those who show you love.

your words made me hurt for you as i read them - no one knows your pain but you and your son but i will take your words to heart - we all think we are invinsible or "it won't happen to me/us" but it does/will have to happen to someone...

all i can say to you is - continue to talk/write - don't keep it inside of you...it will help you heal...even start a journal...have your son and yourself see/talk to a grief counsellor or even a trusted Elder...your family

time is only factor here to take into account - time to heal...we all will continue to pray for you for strength to continue on this journey...

Willow you are such a strong women.....for sharing of how you feel...first of all...I had a lump in my throat from reading your post, and thanx for letting everyone know how your doing because we all luv you and your family. My heart and my prayers are with you. I have never met you before...but I have seen you dance...which you dance so gracefully. I may not know your pain about losing a loved one/partner, but what I do know is....I know how it feels of not being able to use your legs....I myself have been there too (long story short, don't know what happened to me, but I collapsed on the ground in the parking lot, right after my compition and...I couldn't get up) I couldn't use my legs. I was paralyzed...for 2 to 4 months and I ended up in a wheelchair. I'm also a jingle dress dancer, it was "faith and prayers" that got me back up on my feet again, and I didn't let it beat me bcause I went back to the same pw a yr later....and having to experience of being paralyzed...made me look @ life in a whole different way...positive way. And yes, when I wasn't able to use my legs...right after I thought to myself "what am I gonna do now?" I started thinkin' negative, so which was why I had many questions. So when I dance...I dance for those who cannot or for those who are ill, and most of all...I dance for my mother who passed yrs ago, and it feels great when I'm out there jammin' because I know my mom is there...watching, and I know she's proud.
So keep your head up, look straight, don't look back (take the happy memories with you, not the tragedy) and do what you think is best, but most of all.....pray and have faith....because you will be dancing again someday, not only your hubby and daughter will be there in spirit watching you tearin' it up on the floor and makin' them proud, but you will feel them as well, take as much time as you need to heal, there's no rush. Everyone here is...here to help and give comfort. *hugz* May God Bless You And Your Son, And Guide You Along The Way.
