Welcome to my world
Robert David Steele - "Uncle Bob"
He passed away quietly on Thursday, September 18, 2003.


I would like to share a few pictures from the a canoe blessing. The new canoe was named "Uhane O Lopaka" or "In the spirit of Robert." Pops attended and enjoyed the event. I hope you enjoy these last photos of a dear relative. Personally, I owe many things to Uncle Bob. He wrote a kind letter of support during my immigration into the USA. He helped me find my first job. And, with great patience, he taught me how to paddle. For this and much more, I will always be grateful to have known him and will miss saying "Hi Pops!" each time I saw him.

As with everyone who knew you, I will miss you too.

With much love from your nephew,

September 2003
