Steve is my cousin. He is really the only cousin that was ever close to our family. He would often visit and bring a smile to the face of the six kids that had lost their Daddy, Steve's uncle. He looked a lot like my Dad, and that brought me comfort.

He was a kind and sweet man and I am proud to call him family.
