Notes from Steve

College Bound Yesterday we took our two youngest children, Hunter (18) and Grant (17) to college. They will attend the University of Iowa. It was fun, but also a lot of hard work (I forgot, we were actually MOVING them!). Hunter is in Currier Hall and Grant is in the...

Notes from Steve

Life is a series of short stories with interesting characters (or at least I hope it still continues to be). One of the most interesting characters I had the pleasure to know passed on recently. He was bombastic, opinionated, loud, caring, passionate, and believed deeply in his path. God only...
