One of the most popular stories this week was about Stephen Bossom, who was shot and killed by police in Newport two weeks ago. This story looks into Bossom's life, growing up in Virginia before moving to Colorado and working as a youth minister. He was traveling full time with his wife and daughter, which brought them to Maine several months ago.

Sudden deaths in the area always draws the attention of the public, and understandably so. People want to understand the circumstances of the tragedy and the details of someone's death. But it is equally important, if not more so, to remember someone's life. Stephen Bossom was more than his death.

In this instance, we were fortunate enough to speak with Stephen Bossom's mother about his life. Because of that, the public has a fuller picture of Stephen and knows more than just his death.
