A mother's love is like no other.

Mom loved each and everyone of us as best as she knew how.

Her love will not be forgotten.

Her nishnaabe Noozwin
"Mashkawaa - Ode' - Kwe"
"Strong Hearted Woman"
suits her whole heartedly.
This name was given to her by her granddaughter Liberty. Mom was a strong hearted woman. She lived a hard life and she lived it good.

I praise my mom. I praise her for all her hardwork in raising 7 of us all on her own.

She left her hometown of Wiikwemkoong 45 years ago at the young age of 32 and with 7 children on her back. Imagine that, I don't think you will see such a thing happen in today's society.

I was so happy to have her back home for these past few months so I could share in her care and give back to her. We took good care of her, we also took good care of "her girls" as she requested.

I want to say "Chi-Miigwetch" to my siblings who worked hard in getting our mom back home during the lockdown of our community and during this covid pandemic. I love yous.

Baamaapii Miinwaa Mom. Rest easy.
