^He was handsome, huh.
Now he has very long hair and admits he looks a bit the stereotypical indian.
Yes, my brother was a type 1 diabetic. He died from hypoglycemia after a tennis match when he was 16. My grandfather also has type 1 diabetes, and so do I.
That's very sad.
I didn't know you were part Chippewa. (Or maybe I did and forgot.)
There are a bunch of Chippewa in my family. Both my Grandpa's sisters got a bit adoption crazy and gobbled up a sibling-set each.
I only know one of them well though. She and my mom are the same age and have always been really close. She's pretty big into her heritage and has taught me a lot over the years. She speaks the language fairly well and has taught me a few words too--not that I can ever pronounce them.
