- 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.

I had a request to place "something special" at Gunnar's grave, for Memorial Day and after much thought, the "dirt toy" days won. See above pic.
Yesterday,I was picking rock, in the yard. My mind wandered back in time, thinking about how many kids had played in that old rotten willow tree, and in the sandbox, under it's shade. I bent down, to pick up a rock, and laying right beside it was a little steel dump truck. It's rusty, and full of sand. Thank you, Gunnar, for the "sign".
Tyler, I hope it meets your approval, also.
