WhiteEagle , We are very sorry to here that about your step father Terry, God be with you and the Family . hope your back get's better , i know what you are going though with your back. You and family will be in our prayers.
I'm sorry to hear on the passing of your stepdad....grieving isnt just about missing the person, there are various stages like guilt, blame,anger, hurt, accepting. Learning to do things without that person being part of it anymore is hard , but it gets easier in time (it doesnt mean you have forgot them ,you can never forget them ). "White Eagle"...please cry when you need to ,let the grieving out.....the reason i say this is,...i didnt (when my mother died ) & i became ill through it (for a time ). hope you dont mind me saying all that . anyway,i give you & your mum a hug ok .

Thank you for kind words, kinshoni.
You were right all about that. I had very ill but now I'm getting better but my mother still very upset and stressing because of A LOT of paper work to do from the Air Force company that give her VERY, VERY hard time that is not right...... I am VERY angry at them who done to my mother...... Finally, they'll giving the money to my mother then she will put the money in her bank, that's for taking care of her, me, my brother and 2 sisters but my mother still keep busy with the paper work for long time, I'm not sure how long time, I'll ask her. She said she don't have time to post back to us. I told her that is fine, no problems. I will take care of everything for her.
She gave me newspaper about Terry with photo in a glossy light yellow (antique style color) thin cardboard, to protect it from aging or scratch surface. I'll put it in a very special frame artwork and hang on the wall in my living room.
My real name is Patrick Richard, the newspaper said:

And my brother Jim Richard put a prayer information on the back of the card to showing us:
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yeah, through I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me in the preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

I am sorry to hear of your loss,White Eagle, I understand what you are going through as I have lost family members as well as losing a son. It takes time and prayers, its easier to think of the good times even though they will make you cry. It has been almost 9 yrs since my son passed and there are times when I miss him so I want to be with him. Take care and be strong!

twoblades: Hi Chuck. I am Cherokee and we use the word A'ho as the closing to our prayer. Wado is "western dialect Cherokee" but we use it in the "Eastern dialect" as well because it is recognized.

cherokeebutterfly: Good Day. I just found this page and would like to know more about my ancestry. It is my belief according to my online genealogy that Cherokee Chief John Bowles is my 6th or 7th generation grandfather. I have found other Bowles members that say the same.

chuck: Also, I have read that the Cherokee do not use this word A'HO as thank you, but uses the word wado.
Nov 24, 2017 15:52:51 GMT -6
chuck: I have studied the word A'HO and have read in studies that various tribes use this word as greeting, thank you, or ending in prayer. However in further study I read that this is not true and that this word is not real or used. Any thoughts?
