“My family meant everything to me. First, my mom, dad, brothers, and sisters; I loved them all. Then came my own family, my wife, my sons, and my daughter, then my grandchildren. But surrounding us were all our relatives, nieces and nephews. All of my great-nieces and great-nephews, and all the tokojas. I remember all their names, in death, I will carry their memory to the Lakota Heaven. I have put them all in my heart. My way was hard, now in peace I go home to my relatives.”
