Today my dad Claude Steiner died on the shore of PennyRoyal lake at his RoundMountain Ranch in Ukiah CA surrounded by family.
As he gazed out over the water, listening to music and crying and laughing at the beauty of life, his final words were "love is the answer" and then "I am so lucky". He died in absolute peace and total comfort and with dignity.
His ashes will be buried at the PennyRoyal lakeshore, under the Willow tree, in the next month.
A memorial will be planned in the late Spring.
Many of us feel we needed more time with him. Together we will keep his wisdom and love alive and together our grief will be soothed.
Claude Steiner as you look down upon us from the cosmos - know that you are eternally beloved.
Noemi "Mimi" Steiner Doohan, January 2017.
