I discovered our Ball State University choral friend, Steve Workman, and his wife, Connie Ortman Workman, lived in the same community of some dear friends not associated with BSU. In fact, Steve had recently accompanied their daughter at solo & ensemble contest. This was my friend’s note regarding Steve’s funeral.

Darin, just came back from Steve’s funeral. It was beautiful, what a tribute to the man’s life. The church was packed. There were so many snifles and tears, it was the underscore of the service.

He truly touched so many lives. They left one of the altar (officiant) chairs with his vestments on it — for him.

The service was very well done. And Ball State was mentioned a few times, as well as Muncie, Indiana. Of course I thought of you.

Just thought I would share this with you.
