From Helen Kolff

I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to spend a whole week with Stan Crow just this past June as an apprentice wilderness guide for the Adult Vision Quest organized by Journeys. In spite of his physical limitations, he eagerly boiled up and carefully cleaned the jaw bone of an elk so that we could present each of the participants a genuine elk tooth as a talisman and symbol of our intense time together. No task was too mundane for him--he set up the outdoor toilet, fetched gallons of water from a distant stream, drove the heavily loaded van painstakingly along miles of rutted dirt roads, cooked meals, told stories, planned activities, found just the right poems, and offered profound and life-changing encouragement to the questers. I had just a glimpse of a wise elder who lived life fully and with great humor, love and spirit. My life has been enriched because of my precious time with Stan. May we all be inspired by Stan's life! Sincerely, Helen Kolff
