Steve was such a great guy and he will be missed by many. I wish we could have just seen or talked to him one more time! I guess that's what we all wish at times like this. Love to you!

Even from a distance, a tremendous feeling of loss marks Steve’s passing. Loss of light, humor, and love.   Steve’s broad smile and boisterous laugh are forever a part of my family memories.  Family not by blood -by choice.   My heart is with you Anetta, Stevie, and Andy.  I can only imagine the emptiness you are feeling but take comfort knowing that family and friends surrounding you in your time of need, can model Steve’s compassion and love. Giving back to his family a small measure of what his life gave us all.
