“Walk in front of me I may not follow, walk behind me I may not lead, just walk beside me and be my friend, and a journey of thousand miles starts with one step.”

Posted on Thursday December 17, 2015

This week the Wayfinder community lost a dear friend and supporter, Tim Stewart. Tim played an incredibly important role in the lives of our students, and helped hundreds of young people realize their hopes and dreams and goals over the years.  Tim was a fixture at many Opportunity Farm/Wayfinder Schools gatherings, where he would share jokes with staff and students and bring out the best in everyone. He would often open our community dinners with the following blessing.

Walk in front of me I may not follow, walk behind me I may not lead, just walk beside me and be my friend, and a journey of thousand miles starts with one step.”

Several years ago, Tim and his wife Howsie planted a special birch tree overlooking the Opportunity Farm Field of Dreams. They included a plaque that reads, “This tree honors all those whose commitment has enriched the lives of children who have called the farm home.” Tim certainly did that.

Thank you Tim. You will be greatly missed.
