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.

Remembering~a quote.............

When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. You can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us. It means... that if we meet again, you will know me. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart" --Frederick BuechnerRead More

Cyber Friends & Memorial Day~~Do Not Forget....

(Below is a poem, written by a friend, I met, on a forum. I've asked her for permission, to post it here, for Memorial Day.)

Do Not Forget...
by PoconoProud

Do Not Forget
What We Lost For You ~
Our Lives and Limbs
Of We Proud and Few.

Do Not Forget
What We Gave Up For You ~
We Who Answered The Call
For The Red, White & Blue.

Do Not Forget
That We Bled For You ~
While Our Wives Wept
and Our Children Grew.

Do Not Forget,
For If You Do,
Our Sacrifice Means Nothing ~
and Chaos May Ensue.

Do Not Forget ~
It's Your Freedoms That We Fight For
,So Please, Do Remember
The Soldiers Of This War.

The Fallen.................................
