bone . Support silly make believe
play. Provide puppets, funny props
for dress up and other materials for
children to experiment with different
voices and actions. Listen to your
child's humor. It can offer insights
into hisher concerns or interests. For
instance, constant joking about bad
dreams may indicate underlying fears
or an interest in silly rhyming may be
something you can develop further
in stories and games.
Don't forget to use your own sense
of humor. Responding to frustrating
situations with humor or just getting
down on the floor and engage in a
good old-fashioned ticklefest with
your child will not only set a good
example for himher but will give
you lots of pleasure, too.

To the editor,
To the people of Warm Springs, I
would like to take this time to thank
the many people who were there for
myself and my family after losing
my grandfather (whom I only knew
as Daddy) Wilkins "Popeye" Hellon.
Many a time did he speak of so many
people that he knew all his life. Or
grew up with and worked with. All of
the memories he had he shared with
us and just to hear the laughter or see
his smile made the stories that much
more special to me. I am so glad that
he has left good thoughts and beauti
ful memories for us all. For that is all
that keeps me going today.
My only regret is that I was lost in
my alcoholism after bonus time up
until two weeks before he left us. I
am going to carry that hurt forever.
Yet, I'm glad that I could do what I
had to do for him during his last days.
I loved him so much that there are so
many things that I should have done
and said. But waiting and keeping it
all in made the loss all the more hard
on me. So, people, never be afraid to
tell someone you love them and how
important they are to you. for we all
don't know when our time will come
and we need to tell one another how
At this time I give a very special
thanks to Prunie for her teachings to
me, without hearing that I would not
be here today . It meant So much to me ''
for your words of wisdom and the
time I got to heart it felt like it was
just meant just for me. '
Thank you Charlotte Herkshan
also, for her teaching and listening to
me pour my heart out and telling me
it's okay to make mistakes. Thank
you for cleaning our home and just
taking the time to let us know you

Thank you Alice & Gene Sampson
for keeping your promise of being
with me when I lost my Daddy. I pray
the time for my Grandma is not so
quick and that I can depend on both
of you again.
Thank you to the cooks for the
meals, the casket-bearers and to the
V.F.W. for a ceremony that will re
mind me always of what a respected
man my Daddy was and bringing
back the memories of the stories he'd
share with me about being in the
Marines. He'd talk about the cer
emony of a Veteran when they left
us, and he was never really sure of
whether or not he'd get one, so thank
you for letting me be witness to it for
it was special.
Thank you to the Community Cen
ter staff, all of you left him memories
that made his day. His work was
important to him and you all made
him feel important and special for
doing his duties without complain
ing or asking for more.
Thank you to the IRS for taking
care of his medical bills and making
sure he was taken care of. Shawn, the
public health nurse for taking the
time to see what he needed and giv
ing him that nudge to make sure he
followed the rules. You did for us
what we couldn't force, him to do

against his wishes.' '-' ' r 1 1

Many thanks to Lucille Schuster
for just being around all the time and

car of Louise when she went with the

face always made him forget about

To the E.C.D.C. staff over in Bend
for doing your best to keep my Daddy
healthy and comfortable while he
stayed for dialysis, he always told me
that the nurses treated him good and
the Senior Citizen staff of Bend that
brought the dialysis patients meals.
Although I don't know what the di
alysis process was, I know that he
went through it to extend his life a
little bit longer to be with my chil
dren Arianna, Dallas and Laura. He
always said they were his children
and all that he lived for or would
endure so much suffering for.
Our thanks goes out to ALL of
you for being there through it al,
taking the time to offer a kind word
or sending us a card. Giving him a
beautiful funeral service was some
thing that he had asked not to have.
He wanted to be put away without
any fuss but we didn't want anyone
hurt so we did the best we could. I
want to say that we appreciated all
who officiated, spoke, drummers,
dancers and kitchen helpers without
you all it would not have been so
Though we are left behind, I pray
that we all meet with Daddy again
and that we have the strength to go
