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.

Monday was Memorial Day......
As Memorial Day was ending, I found myself, driving back to the cemetary...but not sure why I felt the strong urge, to go...however, it was quite an Honor, when I got there, because.......I helped a WWII Vet take the flags off the Vet's graves at the cemetary......I learned the Military History, of the Cemetary, [that was cool] and had a nice talk....some of the ''most healing'' conversations, I've ever had, are with Army ppl/Vets.....
