I have walked across the country scattering the ashes of my family

“I am a Native American. Cherokee and Seminole mixed. I am from Key West, Florida and traveled across the United States. My 95-year-old mother and two older brothers were killed in a bad car accident, but I survived. I have big scars in me because I did flips out of the car. I didn’t have my seat belt on. They did and they all died. That was three-and-a-half years ago. I was 225 pounds before the wreck and lost part of my stomach, colon, and small intestine.  I have walked across the country. California, South Dakota, North Dakota, Arizona, and Kentucky. I wound up back here and found this dog seven months ago on the Apalachee River. Someone dumped out nine and they were all dead but her. I have been taking her to Spanish Fort to get her shots and I am about to get her fixed. They are taking care of her for free. Her name is Apache and she is like four kids in one.  I got robbed twice in Mobile and recently at the park in Daphne. They broke my wrist and put 20 stitches in my head. Once I get Apache fixed, we are going back across the states or to Key West. I still have some of my people’s ashes with me. My mama comes from the Walker tribe of Indians and before she died she told me walk across the country scattering their ashes, but have fun doing it. A preacher in Fairhope gave me a phone and someone just gave me a cigarette. I have been through the wringer, but people have been good to me, too.”
