My grandpa is the Rev. Robert Strom mentioned in the article [Faith and activism on the West Side, July 1, 2010]. Sadly, and suddenly, he recently passed away. I am fascinated by the history that I feel I only know a piece of. If anyone who was involved with WSO and reads this please, I urge you to not only to offer your respects, but to help the continuance of knowledge and history that some of the family members did not have an opportunity to be a part of-as our discussions were at times cut short.
