    I can’t believe the Great Spirit called you home, I know you were not alone, your father came and held your hand, welcomed you , leading you to the Great Spirit’s land. Your welcome party was a sight to be seen, grandma Selden, grandpa John too, lots and lots of family came to welcome you.
    The Great Big Drum called your name more and more spirits came, everyone one who traveled before you stood in a circle as the Creator welcomed you in, at that time all the Spirits Dance around, calling your name yelling it loud, while the Elders directed you dance dance in the circle of the external light.
    Now you will sit at the Big Powwow drumming, ,playing it loudly for everyone.
    My heart is broken, love you Dearly.
    Cousin Milli.
