    Nancy and family, I am sorry for the passing of my very good friend, Stephen Hansen. I had the privilege of working with Steve on building the Eddie Miner Log home in Fairview. Little did I know at that time that this hard working, kind and friendly man would someday be my right hand man when I was principal at Fairview Elementary. Steve was the custodian who filled in wonderfully for our school when our beloved Orson Miner was trying to recover from a snowmobile accident. Steve was so very good to everyone of the faculty and students. He took good care of our precious new school as if it was a temple.I will always remember him wearing a tuxedo on the night of the dance review as he was parking cars on the grass west of the building. I tried to keep Stephen on at our school when it was decided that Orson wouldn’t be able to come back but I was out voted by others who really did not know the worth of this good man. I love Stephen as a brother and will continue to love you Nancy and your children forever! Best wishes to all of you. Mr. Seely
