14 years ago my mother Wauneta Lonewolf passed away from lung cancer (she never smoked). There's not a day that goes by where I don't think of her. I thank God for her as a mother and my best friend. She always saw me as a leader and a woman that will empower and heal people. She was always amazed on how I was always being friends with her friends and it's still like that today ;-). Mommie I know you would be happy to know you now have 4 beautiful grandchildren between Julio and myself. I thank you for the way you raised Julio and I. I miss you sooo much and I know one day I will be by your side again.
Rest in Paradise Momma Wolf 😍
