PEACE AND PRAYERS to the family of Steve Winters, who passed away Friday. Click here for his story.
I did not know Steve that well, but I used to see him quite a bit while doing the Fifth Street Crawl between the courthouse and the Whig building. He worked downtown too and he was always very pleasant. That's one of the nice things about living in a place like Quincy - you can't go far without seeing somebody you know during a three-block walk.
I knew a bit about him and learned a great deal more after reading his obituary. Seems to me this was a man who went through some interesting times and learned to appreciate life as he got older.
This pales in comparison to what family and friends are going through. But it's the little things. I will miss saying hello to Steve. Farewell and Godspeed, Mr. Winters.
