|Peace and love, brother. You will be in our hearts till we meet again.|
"In loving memory"
"Happy Birthday, lil bro. Miss you."
"Placing a flower in memory of my brother. He is not bound to one resting place but is free to be anywhere and everywhere. You live on in our hearts, Zane."
"happy birthday dad i miss you everyday and will always remember the good times we had together on this day celebrating your life"
"Happy 63rd birthday, Zane. Thinking of you on your day. I miss the way your eyes sparkle when you're happy, your sarcastic wit, the way everyone you meet feels an instant connection. Gvgeyuhi"
"Remembering you on your Birthday."
"Happy Birthday Zane, will always remember the times we had, working together and hanging out, will always think of you of being my best friend."
"The Great Father above is Gitche Manitou. I am his and with Him I want not. He throws out to me a rope and the name of the rope is Love and He draws me to where the grass is green and the water gentle and I eat and am satisfied.
Sometimes my heart is very weak and falls down but He lifts me up again and draws me onto a good road. His name is Great Spirit.
Sometime, and it may be very soon, it may be very long, long in time He will draw me into a valley. It is dark there, but I'll be afraid not, for it is in between those mountains that Gitche Manitou will meet me and the hunger that I have in my heart all through this life will be satisfied.
He gives me a staff to lean upon. He spreads a table before me with all kinds of food. He puts His hand upon my head and all the "tired" is gone. My cup He fills till it runs over. What I tell is true. I lie not.
These roads that are away ahead will stay with me through life and after, and afterwards I will go to live in the Big Tepee and sit down with Gitche Manitou forever. So be it.
(This is a translation of the 23rd Psalm by a Baptist missionary from sign language of the Plains indians in 1864. It was given to Zane by the chaplain at Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio)."
"Zane your gentle smiles and happy tint in your eye will be missed my all-a true friend is hard to find. and never replaced."
"Today I went to an authentic Indian store (things made by different Indian tribes locally outside Vegas)and thought of dad. I even bought a few things to add to my memorial shelf I'm making of dad. Love and miss you dad!"
"Uncle Zane you are missed and thought of often. I think of the way your eyes sparkled when you were happy. Ive never seen anyone with eyes that shined like yours. I can see you scratching the top of your hair, leaving some sticking up, smiling and saying "I swear" after some unbelievable story. You were always there for a visit or cup of coffee. I'll never pick mullberries or silverberries without an umbrella again, and will think of you everytime. I know you will be with us in spirit. I see you in nature all the time so I will never forget you. I'm reminded to be more gentle and take one day at a time when I see an Owl fly. When I see and eagle soaring...peace. So until we meet again, be at peace and know you are loved and missed. You left us many memories and mattered in our lives."
"I'm glad I was able to reconnect with my dad in his final year. So many regrets but I know he left this world knowing I loved him. I wish I would of had more time with him. But I look forward to seeing him in Heaven. And Skeeter every time I see a hawk or an Eagle I will think of him. I can see him flying away to a better place. A place where there's peace and no more suffering. Love you dad! May you rest in peace."
"My sweet, silly, beautiful baby brother. He was one of a kind, a unique, gentle man and I will miss him. May his spirit walk in soft moccasins and dwell in peace. Or maybe return as an eagle or a hawk."
"i miss the time we lost but i cherish the time we had i love my dad and miss him more than i could imagine i pray to him every night to look over all of us and i try to live everyday to make him proud i love you dad"
"I cherish the time we had together but I wanted more time. We still had stories to share, trips to take and places to see. I miss you."
