|My three sons and I back in 1992, a divorced mom then.|
In the year 2000 I graduated with highest honors from Heritage College in Toppenish, Washington. Going to college with Yakama Indians had been interesting. I didn’t get scalped, molested or knocked in the head! (When I was 20 and wanted to take a job on an Indian Reservation in Montana, my Father had stopped me, warning that I could get beaten up, raped and maybe worse.) The Yakamas had treated me well and I came to love them.

|My sons about 2007. Austin left, Brad center, and David right. My best life's work.|
He was a funny, gentle and outgoing boy. We had a great relationship and were close. He had stopped visiting his dad in Spokane, 200 miles away. It was his father’s decision. That was his dad’s loss but our gain.
Before I ever had my sons, I decided I would teach them to be self-sufficient, very capable in many areas and to take pride in hard work. (Ah, child labor is so great!) Today, all three are hard working, honorable men.

No sooner than she got settled in my apartment, she nervously announced to me she was thinking about getting married, again!
