"Stevie, it's hard to believe it's been nearly 20 years since you left us. You were an amazing athlete and an even better person.  You made an impact on everyone on who came in contact with you.  I think of you often.  Your spirit lives on in all that knew you."

"Steve I'll always remember the good times we shared all the practices and games it was so much fun watching you play all the different sports, basketball and football were my favorites.I always think of the time when you stayed with us the mess you'd make whenever you'd brush your teeth, somehow the bathroom mirror would be covered with toothpaste. lol To this day every time I hear the song '' I believe I can fly'' I just smile and think of you.A lot has changed over the years you'd be amazed at some things and so proud of others especially your ''MOM'' she is an amazing ''Christian Lady'' your sisters are very successful and beautiful young Ladies with amazing children. I can't wait to see you again where all things are ''awesome'' and bright and ''HAPPY'' The place we call Paradise.. Love you & Miss my adopted ''SON''"

"It's taken me eighteen years to talk about the deeper side of Steve... You were a loan to all who loved you ...and you were loved more then you will ever know. You were a brilliant write, compassion, empathetic, and sweet, cautious to let anyone in ... But once in ... What a treat .. Unique in everyday .."what's up up up up" ... One of a kind, deep Were your thoughts big as your smile, words were very important to you..perhaps because they could cut deep or could heal your very soul ... I will always remember the long long talks , you drinking a root beer float ..telling me .."now this is the life" ...our hearts will heal but wrong... I think of casting crown song, "broken together"  ... I don't think you knew how much you'd be loved and missed ..but when we all get together in heaven ... You'll know! The gift was never what you did outside ..the "gift" was you... Thank you for loving your precious son to me for a while ... We are all missing a great piece of you Steve ... But we will see you soon... Love u forever.... lin"

"One year, I gave Steve a Boyz II Men cd for Christmas (called "II")--it was one that I knew he really wanted. We both loved Boyz II Men! He was so excited to see that I got it for him. Of course, it wasn't long before he knew all the words to all the songs and he was singing them through the hallways at school, on the bus rides home after games and even on the phone when we'd talk. I can still hear him singing them now, as I sit and write this and I can't help but smile. Typical Steve! Thinking of it now, it was no wonder he loved the music of Boyz II Men as much as he did--they sang so beautifully about love and passion and that really resonated with Steve. He was such a romantic, that boy!  When we were in grade school, he'd hand me poems on the bus that he had written for me. Such a flirt...so cute! It has been many years, but I've held onto the memories I have of Steve and I've kept them safe in my heart. Every so often, I listen to that "II" album in its entirety and remember him singing many of those songs everywhere. I couldn't say it better than his mom, "He was a gentle spirit that loved deeply..." How true.
I miss you, Steve. Keep singing sweetie! Love ya!"
