    I’m not one who reads poetry, but very much enjoyed those. Thanks for sharing.

    In the shadow of yesterday’s horror, thank you, Karl, for offering us a reminder of our shared humanity at its moral and artful best.

    Your goats go on hikes in the snow??? Mine say no thank-you to that, and to please not ask them to move from their stall until the ground is bare and dry. IF I shovel and path and pack it down a bit they’ll come outside. If it’s sunny. They’re just fuzzy boulders in the winter.

    Wonderful resolutions–I call mine “intentions” because I need the wiggle-room and luckily nothing is dependent on me to get them done. I mean, no hides to tan around here. . . Happy New Year to you all!

    Congratulations on your re-release of your living with goats, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! i just recently bought my first home in the country and have been wanting to get a couple of goats for milking, reading your book was very knowledgeable and made me want to get goats even more! Right now though we’re working on our fencing around our property to make sure it is goat proof!

    Greetings from very snowy Minnesota and Ole Lake Farm. My husband and I are milking our first goat, Daisy, and I am loving it! Why did I wait until the age of 48 to do this? Better late than never. Can’t wait to make some cheese! Just finished ready (today) The Year of the Goat… enjoyed it very much, and will be checking out Living with Goats as well. Your goat hike is a neat thing… I would never have thought of it, but in my pre-goat days, I would have gone for it with much enthusiasm. Anyway, just wanted to wish you well.

    I am so, so sorry for your loss. This is a lovely tribute to Steve and wonderful photograph of the family. Sending love to you all as you begin a new year without Dad and Grampa.

    So sorry for your loss. Steve was a fantastic teacher. I had him for class at WSU in 1981. Over the years his name I have not forgotten. I have forgotten the names of other Professors. I kept my books and notes from his class only. Although, they are yellow and faded, I have referenced them frequently. I owe Steve and what I learned in his class, the ease of my Master’s thesis and my Ph.D dissertation. I did not have the trouble with writing that other students were having. I think it was because I had learned to construct a sentence correctly in Mr. Hathaway’s class. I am truly sorry for your loss. may the memories you have, and the memories from others remain in your heart forever.

    This captures Steve so well. It is a lovely tribute to his lively spirit. I had the pleasure of taking a class from him at Wichita State – and also the enjoyment of several classes from Jeanine, as well.

    The feeling I felt this morning after learning of Steve’s passing was one I cannot describe! I have known Steve for almost twenty five years. Steve was a man’s man! I was privileged to learn many things from this man. It wasn’t what he said but how he said it. And how he did many of those things. One day after playing a round of golf Steve announced that his ‘little’ girl was getting married. He was so proud of Margaret! Oh, how the room lit up when one would ask how ‘Grandpa Steve’ was doing?! Little did we know that he was ill! Nor did we know that he would be moving away from Wichita to Maine. I had been so caught up on my own health issues I failed to keep up with many of my friends. I had promised Steve I would keep in touch with him after I retired in 2009! But my daughter’s wedding in April of that year and the birth of our first grandchild in 2011 changed all that. Knowing Steve he would make some half-wit commit and take it with a “Steve Hathaway” grin! For that was Steve! No Matter what was going on or NOT going on in your family he had your back. Family meant a lot to him. His wallet and or his smartphone would let you know all about his daughter and his grandkids. Rest well my friend! Rest well!!!!

    Margaret, I am so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I worked with Kim in the main office in the 80’s and have such fond memories of you “helping” one parent or the other when you spent time with them on the 6th floor. They always were so proud of you and could not hide the sheer delight when you were with them. I know your Dad was a wonderful professor and gifted writer, but I best remember him as a good man–easy to laugh, quick to calm, straightforward in his speaking, and unabashed in his love for you. I can’t question how happy he must have been to be so close to you and the grandchildren and how blessed you all are to have such precious memories which will become such comfort in days and years to come. Prayers for you and all your family.

    He will be deeply missed by the Schutt family, where is name was often invoked with great reverence.

    I took a Creative Writing class from Steve in the early 1980s. Although I haven’t written a single piece of fiction in over two decades, I greatly benefited from Steve’s teaching. I will never forget him asking, “What is the function of that sentence?” It’s a great question – and not just for authors.

    I will also never forget the camaraderie and story telling that occurred at Kirby’s. The teaching and learning continued long after the formal classes were over. Thank you for sharing your father with us!

    I was stunned by this news. Seems impossible that Steve’s great laugh is lost to the world. I graduated from the MFA program at WSU in 1999. Steve was so bright, enthusiastic, encouraging, fierce. (and he HATED lists that went on and on before ending without an AND–so I think about him whenever I see or write a sentence like that!) Steve was a great teacher, writer and friend. My husband, son and I all took courses from him and count ourselves very lucky to have known him. Nothing I can write here is adequate to address his passing, but just know how many people are thinking about Steve. Sending love to his family.

    I was saddened to learn of Steve’s passing….I was especially surprised since I had just talked to him on the phone in October, and while he sounded a bit tired, he never let on about anything. I knew Steve from WSU, as a colleague, and I treasured his friendship….I was welcomed into a group of “old guy” friends at Harry’s who would ruminate on the political travesties of WSU and also certain other colleagues’ failings (Steve was a part of that group and all are gone now except one). We laughed a lot….I also respected Steve’s counsel when I’d ask him questions about men and my abysmal dating life. Word play, metaphors, sarcasm and that hearty laugh. I think he liked the Packers just for me and loved the hats I got him from Green Bay. He always opened his house to us for Superbowl parties, New Years, Thanksgiving….All of us brought potluck and his cornish hens were a delight. Steve befriended my sister too and he looked forward to her visits from Wisconsin. Camping with him and three other people near Estes Park in 2007 … I remember him getting up in the morning and saying “Bloody Hell!” I will never forget him. He was one of a kind! My sincerest sympathies to you, his family

    Steve was my thesis advisor at WSU. He was an extremely kind and understanding man. He is one of the few people I will always remember. I went back to Wichita a few times after I graduated, and I always made sure I had dinner with him. A kind, decent, and loving person–what more can you say about a person.

    Steve’s powers of observation made me envious; his wit was, suitable to the circumstance, alternately gentle and cutting; he deftly employed his capacity to use and to guide the use of language; and his friendship was a treasure. We are poorer for his absence.

    Even though I can’t write fiction to save myself, I learned much from sharing the hall in the WSU English department with Steve. He was the a kind, happy person who loved literature, teaching, and most of all his beautiful daughter and granddaughters. He and I shared a love of the Michigan landscape, where he grew up and where I lived for several years. I miss seeing him at Harry’s and hearing his wonderful, unfettered laugh, but I’m grateful that I got to know him.
