My daughter Chiara and I met you briefly in Seminole at the Made in Oklahoma Day downtown. We bought your book, and would just like to say we love it. If there are any more books to be published we would love to be on a mailing list.
I would also like to thank you for the work you are doing to preserve Choctaw Heritage. God has given you a beautiful gift, and I am very grateful for what you have chosen to do with it.

I don't think I have seen that many kids sit that still and quiet for such a long time.
