I just need the simple sentence with proper conjugation and declension
Kevin
Latin translation:Noli in oblivionem stirpis/radicis tuae venire
Explanation:
Dear Kevin,

here you have a correct translation.

Literally:

Noli : don't

in oblivionem [...] venire: forget

stirpis/radicis : roots
(it makes better sense as singular, in latin : root, literally - must be genitive, to connect with "in oblivionem"

tuae: your, genitive as "root"

Hope it helped!

best wishes, Flavio

patriae numquam immemor/numquam patriam dedisci


Explanation:
As short as I could, for a motto.

I think the Romans would have used "patria" (genitive patriae) to say homeland.
Numquam = never
immemor = forgetful

no verb

The verb "to be" is understood


Second version
dedisci is to unlearn, to forget
and it is here imperative, second person sing.
patriam is in the accusative
