I recently officiated the wedding of Marc Andrew and Randi Wynne, and as it turns out, my old friend Merle Andrew is father of the groom.

Merle and I became friends back in the day at the Medicine Wheel Academy. I was a teacher and Merle came in to give lessons in the Salish language. The students loved Merle's gentle, non-judgmental way of presenting the material. He related to the students in a meaningful way and became a powerful ally for language and culture. He certainly earned my respect.

Now I'm excited to participate in the marriage of his son.
