Steven loved Tennessee. After he moved here from Ohio, he couldn't get enough of the fly fishing, hiking, camping, and bluegrass. His favorite places included Roan Mountain, Dennis Cove, and South Holston Dam. When he died a year ago today, he left us confused and saddened, but also thankful -- thankful for his smile, his wit, his gentle spirit which called us to live each day, appreciate the little things and to enjoy life.
Thank you for introducing Steven. What a tragic loss of a beautiful spirit.ReplyDelete
As a high school counselor for many years, I know the pain of losing young friends who were special to many. Such profound losses taught me to love and to live every day to its fullest - something those young friends, like Steven, seemed to know intrinsically. Maybe it's true that "only the good die young."
