Sad News

May 29, 2016. Inter-faith (Lakota, Omaha and Quaker) memorial for Te Wa'u Danielle Black Eyes, 3:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Indian Center, 1100 Military Road, Lincoln, Nebraska.

Beloved Danielle was critically injured in a car crash last weekend. After laying with God in a coma for a few days, her body became a blessing and a gift to others as an organ donor. Her ancestors and family released her spirit on 5/24/16. She was taken off life support in the evening of the 25th, surrounded by her loving family.

It was a joy to watch Danielle during yearly meeting grow from a Young Friend into a beautiful young woman. Many know her son Liam as the child who lights up any room he enters.

We hold Danielle's large and extended family (including the Gilbert, Taylor, Ludy-Eden, and Dorenbach families)  in the Light during this time of grieving. We also hold her dear Friends who grew up with her in the meeting, as well as the cherished adults who guided, worked and played with them each summer.

 Danielle was loved by so many people, and we deeply mourn her loss.
