It was likely that Ashleigh took the money because she favored her father over her mother, she was pressured to take the money, and she acted as though she was going to take the cash. Ashleigh favored her dad over her mom so it was likely she took the money to help her father. Sometimes she would say things that would make it seem like she didn’t like her mom “Mom might never be caught without batteries or tissues, but she called me Ashleigh-a name she didn’t even like-and never promised me anything,” (Susan Pfeffer #1). As you can see in the quote Ashleigh didn’t like how her mother saw her name and how she never makes promises to Ashleigh. Ashleigh and her father are like best friends and get along well “My friends’ fathers, they just tell my friends to study more they never tell them they have flair or style.” (Susan Peffer #2).

Dee Ann was left obsessed with what had happened. Every year her husband brings up the names of those involved, hoping he would say them and she would just let it go like nothing happened (Yarbrough 632).

We grew in our understanding of the trail and of course in our individual abilities. Sometimes we fell silent but others were full of laughter and the innocence of getting to know another. We were also privy to meet Teresa and become part of their family for the course of a few weeks. Teresa’s culinary delights and warm personality always greeted our tired and stinky self’s during our reprieves. Thanksgiving was spent in warmth with a real turkey instead of the instant Idaho potatoes and tuna fish we had already anticipated.
