          In loving memory to my brother and friend.

          Words can't express the hurt and saddness that's in my heart since you've been gone a little more than a year now.

          I miss you everyday and I'am sure others who know you do too. This road seems so sad and loney without you here.

          Thank you for giving me the honor of sitting at he drum, and teaching me some of your beauitful songs. Traveling and singing with you and Judy was the best time of my life.

          I'll will never forget you and always love you my bother and friend. Sleep well untill we meet to sing and dance again.

            In loving memory of my grandfather Mr Elmer Laflesche Blackbird. He went home November 13, 2007 after a lengthy illness. He was the greatest man I ever will know, He was my hero & like a father to me even though he told me one time (I cant be your father, I can only be your grandfather & show you everything I have taught my sons & love you like a father loves his son) . He lived in Walthill, Nebraska for most of his life and made his home there. He was the first Native American to graduate from Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska. He was a professor at Haskell University in Lawrence, Kansas. A two time tribal chairman for the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska. A high school Omaha language teacher at the Macy Public High School, Tribal historian. Chairman of the Native American Church Association. Its sad to say that the Omaha Tribe lost a major part of our religion, & history. He is the greatest man I knew & he touched alot of peoples hearts in indian country all around the United States. I know I have forgotten alot of his accomplishments he achieved in his lifetime. I was raised by this man and had the priveledge of being in his presence half of my life and would not be the man I am now. He was an every day teacher of our culture, language, History, religion and your every day walk of life. I honored him every chance I had and I will never let my children forget him.

            • For Our Mom

              OUR Mother passed on Feb 2 2007
              it is hard but in a beauty way comforting that she doesn't have to suffer that way anymore. she was 70 years young when had breast cancer but she beat that as well as other types of white sicknesses. The CREATOR had given 7 more beautiful years with her on mother earth. She taught me lots not having a father around and taking both parental roles.

                      In loving memory of my son, who crossed over 2 years ago. He took my heart and part of my soul, which has only survived because Creator has carried me on his shoulders when I cannot walk myself. I have learned how to walk the path for whatever time I have left. I thank Creator for all the lessons, the messengers/helpers and the ndn brothers and sisters he sent to help me along the way. Nya-weh.

Then sometimes, just sometimes the Crow can bring the soul back and put the wrong things right.”

                        In loving memory of Michael Angle, another Native brother lost to the disease of alcohal. The doctors told him to stop or else, but he just couldnt, it had too strong of a hold on him. He was taken off of life support this past Monday. Please keep our family in your prayers especially his children and new grandbaby.

                        • In loving memory of my maternal Grandma & Grandpa! My happiest childhood memories come from the times I spent with them! I'm glad for that! I miss them both dearly.

                          There was a time when I was soo sad & felt all alone without them. I must have been thinking about them so much that I had a dream in which my grandpa came to me in my dream. I remember him walking around a tepee toward me. That startled me cuz before he passed he had been confined to a wheelchair. But anyways, I remember him reaching out his hands to me then I started crying really hard while he held me. He patted my head then he told me both he & my grandma were fine and not to worry about them too much anymore! I woke up crying...not crying in a sad way but in a happy way! After that the hurt I felt ever since they passed on lifted!

                          RIP Gramma & Gramps!!

                          But Boss, I am working!!......on finding my next pow-wow that is!

                                Thank goodness for the memories that carry on in their heritage who for some were taught to forget it. How Sad is that? Even still for others it is part of thier tradition to burn all of their belongings when they die. Man I respect it but we still need to write it down for others or it's as if those who tried to make them forget who they were, win.

                                  I just got back from the Veterinarian. My 18 year old cat quit eating four days ago, was real lethargic, hanging his head and obviously not well. Ty was a black persian with copper eyes. He was an indoor cat trained to walk on a leash. I got him back in 1986. Little did I know that he would be with...

                                  It's been so hard to be online. . .to do much of anything. I was very close to my father, and while no death is expected or usually wanted, his was quick. He was only 56. He had a cough that would not go away, but no other symptoms, so he put off going to the doctor. But it started not letting him...
