    Tunwin Mona Wopida Tanka for always greeting me with a smile and a hug when I would come home to the “Lake”. It’s going to be different not seeing you there. May the Creator watch over your loved ones. Prayers and Good thoughts go out to aunties Rocky, Katie and Darlene. Niece Jodell from Oneida, WI.

    Rembering the times we shared will always bring a smile,
    Always you had a way of making things seem better.
    Meeting you at work taught me a lot of things,
    One thing I will remember is how you always helped people.
    Not only my brothers, but me as well,
    Always it would be an honor to have known you.

    I will miss you, my friend. Thank you for being in my life.

    My condolences to the family of Ramona Keeble.

    She was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed.
