Such a small box for so much to say about a wonderful lady, leader, and friend.  So, I will write words of spirit for they carry far and last forever as I have been taught by Our God.  This lady always, always welcome me with respect and grace.  She is one of my favorite Kiowa Ladies of Distinction and will forever be remember by me as one who inspired (one who awakens a particular feeling in somebody), with class and great dignity.  God will receive and welcome her home.  We will say farewell to her body self, but forever will have her influence and spirit as a people. Well done Ms. Ahtone!
