Just thinking about you Steve as I often do but finally found a place to display it in words. It has been 18 years since that horrible day that we lost you and it seems just like yesterday. Its been about 23 years ago that we were going through the LBPD academy together. You were such an amazing person, police officer, father, and friend. You loved your community and you always worked to make our community a better place. You are so desperately missed within your community. This earth lost a special caring person to anyone you came across.
