I didn’t know you until she left the room. In many ways you were a secret agent only revealing the pieces that you wanted me to see. Now the light has shined anew and I see much more of your strengths, weaknesses, and kindness that was hidden for so many years. Maybe it was the power she weld in our tribe or maybe I didn’t shine the light deeper on you. I truly do miss her but there is some condolence in knowing that I’ve finally really got to meet you.
