    So many memories from the mid-70's to mid-80's, many I can't remember or I am better off not to say:-) From those teen rebellious years through my mid 20's hard to not remember an adventure that does not include Steve, would make a great movie and you'd be the star. Wish I would have gotten to see you more in the late years as we both grew older and wiser. I am sure when you walk through those gates in heaven you were selling something my friend. R.I.P. Steve.

    So sorry for your loss. Steve was always such a fun loving person. I will never forget the fun times we had hanging out in high school. I always had a smile on my face. Rest in peace Stevie.
