Estevan,
I never knew you, but we have shared so much. I now walk in your footsteps, protecting the resources that we both love so dear. Your name and legacy are often remembered, as we think about the past. It has been 25 years since your passing, and even now I shed a tear. As new generations of WM's now walk the halls, each has a story and a reason to be here. Some may leave their mark, but most will just move on. Some may not even be remembered, long after they are gone. I pray that you are remembered, for the good, not for the bad. Thank you for the reminder, that our lives are not for sure. We work in remote places, with our wits and cunning to back us up. Every day is a blessing we aught not give up. Our profession is amazing so I thank you for your time. From one Game Warden to another I will remember you for all time.
