Steve was one of a kind person who was helpful in many ways. He was also a very complex person and knew things many of us will never understand. He once asked me what I would like and my reply was, to have your mind for one day. Afterward I wondered if that could have occured, what would have happened to me.
Steve you were a good husband, good father, grandfather, and best of all, my friend.
