“Friday was the final day of work here on the Crow Reservation. We finished not only sealing and staining Chief Plenty Coup’sHouse butt were able to complete the home of Mary DeCrane. Mary is an elder who is sharing her home with other members of her clan.

“Tonight, we will reflect on the wonderful moments of laughter, prayer, companionship, and service as we begin our venture home.

“A heartfelt gratitude to the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, Sharon Smith, Mary Lou Mendel and Shep (their faithful protector) for their gracious hospitality while here on the reservation.”
