    I had the honor of meeting you growing up with Rochelle. You were always friendly and would help out anyone if you could. I remember staying overnight at your house and you made us all soup and your famous frybread. I will really miss you because everytime you saw me, you always smiled, said hi and asked how I was doing, not much people now and days have respect and class like that. You knew how to make people feel good. You will be missed.
