Steve, I remember the night you left us, We had just shared instant messages on our DXT's asking how our Thanksgivings were just a few hours before God called you home. There hasn't been one time I have forgotten about you. You are truly missed, and I definitely miss your crazy loud laugh. Definitely one of a kind you are Steve. Forever your friend.
