Rest in eternal peace ! I miss seeing you around various native events. I will always remember when we rode the Bainbridge - Seattle Ferry back from Suquamish, Wa and were were standing at the end of the car deck. You had your little bird on your shoulder and I was so afraid it would fly away. The little bird stayed perched on your shoulder. You made beautiful earrings & bracelets ! You encouraged me to make earrings too. Fly high with the Eagles !
Crossing over is the greatest journey, will see you again my friend...not an ending just a beginning. GW.
You have left us too soon. You have given me many wonderful memories. You were such a part of the NatIve people here in the Seattle area. Kodiak man and I will miss you eternally. We love you very much! We will see you in paradise. John 5:28, 29

Heaven has been Blessed with a Beautiful Angel.
Ferntree, beautiful sister teacher, you have been a treasured friend to so many.
Thank you for sharing your sobriety and artistic skills. I occasionally can thread a needle for beading the way you patiently spent hours teaching me and a few others.
I am grateful that you chose to have Magenta Marie Spinningwind by your side as you journyed across She was born by tradition to do this work, as our family has done for generations..
Heavens Angels surely sounded a loud chorus as you crossed the finish line gracefully.

You touched so many lives.. it was always a joy to see you in a meeting. I remember the first time when I walked in to the Fremont Hall with my Muckleshoot friend Fred who know you well we will all miss you.

Dear Ferntree. Many years ago when I had just a few months, there was a Medicine circle happening during the Fremont summer picnic. You invited me to join. I said I'm not Indian, is it ok? You looked me directly in my eyes and told me We are all the same tribe. You always gave me the most priceless gift, Ferntree: Love and Acceptance.

My beautiful friend! You always spoke in poetry: “The trees are standing tall and happy!” I loved our friendship. I still have a recording of you telling your life story. I am forever amazed and inspired that you never became angry or bitter- always positive and had a good word for everyone. And I especially loved how you saw things in the clouds and called God “Daddy”. You are dancing with Him now. I was blessed when you came to Longview with me once and I took that picture of you sitting on my horse. You looked so natural and happy. Oh how I miss you. But we will see one another again
