My deepest heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones. With such a great loss to the family/community I cannot help but feel the loss as well of such a light that is now in the skies above us. I first met her when going to school at Chemawa. Then when I moved back home in 1995 we crossed paths again and of course thru out the years. May the Creator help you in your time of sorrow, loneliness and sadness and may your hearts be filled with all the happy memories that you will always have.
