It's that time of years when you would've finished your trips to California and Nevada to collect Toys for Tots and be wrapping gifts at Chinle Elementary School. Getting all the elves and your sleigh ready for the big day, delivering toys to the children all across Chinle Agency.

Miss you every day, People tell you time will heal but it has been 1 and half year. It seems to just get harder and harder for me, us, mom and dad. Keep speaking out of your family and for this pandemic to go away, while you sit at Jesus's table.

Love and Missing you
