As a certified thanatologist, I've been looking forward to the ADEC Annual Conference for several months! I was so happy that Steve was able to join us. It turned a conference into a fun vacation for us as well. As we entered the hotel the first day, Steve asked me if I knew anyone here, No! We laughed at my adventurous spirit. I was anxious to get oriented to where everything was in the hotel and begin to meet some colleagues from across the country (600 attended this conference). Such a big thank you to Steve (always) for helping me learn the hotel and coming to the first keynote session (Thomas Lynch) with us. I loved having him share in my experience. Then, he had a chance to do some running, reading and working from our hotel room.
