Epilogue
Mylo's family continues to visit his grave. Although the pain remains, they also have reasons for joy.

Diane recently learned she will become a grandmother. Her surviving son, James, is awaiting the birth of his first child. A few weeks back, for the first time since Mylo's death, Diane did some traditional American Indian beadwork. The design featured four eagle feathers mixing red, black, white and yellow beads. Diane said she chose the design to represent the colors of all the world's people.

James has been working in construction and focusing on his future. He's excited about becoming a dad. The doctor told him to expect a little girl. He couldn't stop smiling as he shared the news.

Nilah and John still live in Portland, Ore. They drove up for Mother's Day so she could join the rest of Donna's kids in marking the holiday.

Donna has been waging a quiet battle with ill health. Last year, she lost most of her eyesight. She's spent much of this summer recovering from surgery for other problems.

She called a few days ago. She said she was on the mend, and felt good enough to do some shopping.
