Steve, I will never forget you. I pray for you and think of you often. Sometimes I can feel your presence. It’s still hard to wrap my mind around the thought of such a tragedy happening to you and your family. I pray you are at peace in heaven with your family and closest friends. Love you my dear friend. Til we meet again, Brenda
