Sorry to hear of your loss.

Steve and I met in Idaho, think it may have been in 77.

We traveled to Butte/Flathead one summer where I met his maternal family. We eventually parted ways, but he always managed to keep in touch.

Last October, he would call daily to see where we were, as my daughter and I traveled to the east coast. It a nice to have someone check up on us during it road trip.

He would tell me of his accomplishments on helping the homeless, making it easier for them to live, amongst other stories. For a man who didn't graduate, he was street smart, doing what he could to help others.

As I told Cyndy, he mentioned that he was interested in learning the traditional ways and was planning on coming over to meet my brother and learn what he could.

Evidently, the good Lord had other plans for him, which was to make his journey back home. May he rest in peace.
