On Monday evening March 31st, 2014 my friend Steve McKee died after being untethered from life support at the Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York. Steve and his wife Noreen and I go back to our days of living in Alaska in the 1970’s. An extraordinary couple and good friends this world has lost a bright smile, incredible wit and a most generous heart.
Go now, my friend, with your head held high, and call upon the forces of compassion. – Bardo Prayer from the TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD.
