Steven was my BEST friend growing up. His Mother and mine were also best friends from the time they first met in Elementary school. I still think of those days even now. Steve was my first Brother. Its impossible to believe it has really been 30 years since he was taken from the World. Always in my heart Steve. Love you man!
