I've lived 35 years, our Creator loaned me this life to share with my loving parent's, family, grandparents.
Makah, as some of you seen I was tired, my path had to end.
My illness wouldn't allow me to enjoy life more, but gave me poems to share, music which I loved that filled my happy mood, my language.
(Neheyowewin) was what made me proud to be able to speak my true self Aaren ikosi".
