Remembrances

Steve Smith was a good friend. I met him at square dancing and he was always helpful, kind, and a smooth dancer. He was always patient with new dancers and wanted everyone to have fun. He also liked to go two-stepping and line dancing. He was really good at the Oil Can Slide line dance.
He wanted to share his love of cooking. One of the last days we spent with him, we got together to make bread. And it was really good bread. I loved spending time with him.
When we lost him too soon to the scourge of HIV/AIDS, some of us in Independence Squares made a panel for the AIDS quilt. We brought it down to DC to be added to the Quilt.
The image we use for our friend had an image of a cat to represent his cat Spaulding Grey, the gold star was for his work with students, his leather vest for his image as gay man about town, and the tee-shirt and bandana were from his love of square dancing with his home club Independence Squares. The camel was for a joke he liked to tell that involved cigarettes and camels.
