Title Duskee
Description Duskee loved to wear a white shirt, and he didn't think anyone could iron it as good as I could, and if they did iron it, he would have to get my inspection on it. The first night he went to bed in our home Leo went up to check on him and say goodnight and found he was in bed with all his clothes on. He soon learned to appreciate a good clean bed and to put some pajamas on at bedtime. He loved all kinds of sports and athletics, and he was a good help on the farm. He was active every way all through high school, but when he graduated he lost some of his usual zest for life. Something was wrong, and we knew it. We took him to Dr. G. B. Madsen and the terrible report was leukemia, cancer of the blood, and T.B. of the lungs. Dr. Madsen took him to a hospital in Tuba City to be cared for until he passed away. Duskee was broken hearted to leave our family, but we have had him sealed to us now for time and eternity. This is the story of our dear Lamanite son and brother long before the L.D.S. Church Indian placement program began. Source: Personal recollections of the author. -119-
