I'm sorry to hear of Sak's passing. I spent a lot of time in the family home when they lived on Basin Street and have many good memories of those days. I can still see Sak smile and hear him laugh.

I'm so sorry to hear of David's passing. During his time working evenings at the Cherokee Nation David became a dear friend to his coworkers as well as myself. Always uplifting and encouraging, his absents alone saddened the workplace instantly.
David's friendship was truly a blessing.
May he rest in peace. Till we meet again my friend.
