Tragedy struck my family again when my sister Tess' husband Steve passed away just a few days after Christmas. It was his wishes to be cremated so we were able to wait until his family arrived from out of state to hold the open house/memorial. My father suggested the perfect venue for the memorial - the headquarters of the Sons of the Utah Pioneers - where my sister Tess is the National Managing Director.
Steve was a professional skier and aerialist. He was a world cup freestyle champion twice.
He was even featured in Warren Miller's Steep and Deep (which we had playing at the memorial).
