A beautiful tribute to someone you remember with such fond memories. It sounds like he was an exceptional person.


What a touching story. I have tears in my eyes. Happy Birthday. Sara. (She types thru blurry vision).

A beautiful and meaningful tale in many respects. There are people who lead and teach us just by being present in our lives. What a joy to know even one of them.


He came into your life at an important time for you, and he made a difference. Lovely memories for you.

How fortunate to have such an exceptional person in your life. A good reminder to recall for all of us, that person who afforded us their wisdom, their way, their guidance, perhaps their peace. And Happy Birthday to Sara. I like to recall that my children's birth dates were also BIG for me, never wanting to forget how this precious bundle came and exploded my life, my self in such a positive way.

Beautiful post, Nicole.


So wonderful. I took two classes in college from Hartman Lomawaima’s wife, Dr. Tsianina Lomawaima, and remember her as a beautiful, joy-filled woman who taught me a lot about the ongoing relationship between the USA and Native Americans. Thanks for sharing this memory! It gave me a happy feeling
