About Me

I have lived in south Dakota, all of my life. My family is here, my roots are here. While I don't spend alot of time with "family", we always manage to bond together, when times get tough. Gunnar's death is more proof, of that.I also have a huge family of friends, and this "family"also pulls together, in a heart beat,when necessary. My parents live about 70 miles away, my husbands parents live about 7 miles from our house.

Gunnar, and many others, deployed, from Vilsec Germany, to Iraq, on this date...I had one hell of a phone conversation, with my son, that day....we spoke of power of attorney & death, and a huge promise, from me....''Don't forget, Mom, if something happens to me, over there, i wanna be an organ donor''....................i didn't have the guts to say, that's pretty hard, when you're in a warzone......
