My second cousin, Pat, is one of the funniest, most genuine people in the world. One of my favorite family stories to tell involves how he had a costume specially made in a tailor’s in downtown Birmingham, Alabama to be in garb for my wedding. We have a lot of stories like that about Pat. He’s just that kind of person.

Pat is also a survivor of the attack on the World Trade Center.

“After the crash, and amid the screaming, he started to pray out loud. ‘I said, “Jesus save me and these two guys with me.” Neither one of them complained.’”

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
