So many memories in so little space; the one that sticks out the most is when you were telling me some time after my mom and dad got together, and I believe it was in a walmart you were saying, and theres me a little white looking girl running through the store yelling "kokum and mushum" and people were just looking at me lol. I will forever miss you kokum; you were always tryna help me out when you could. I'm so happy we got to spend the past new years together. Although I am sad you are gone, I am happy to know that you are not hurting and that you and mushum are together again. I love you to the moon and back always and forever.

When I was a kid, your kids were my friends and I was living on the streets. My father and brother moved to Ottawa,Ontario. I was really down and out. I remember it being so hard. I really had nobody, until I met u. You introduced my to my mothers side of the family in 1993 I believe it was January. I just wanted u to know that u saved my life and thank u. To honor u and all of our kind hearted people with my success. Sincerely Merle Kahnapace.
