    You can search your whole life to find a friend Steve. Most never do, but I on the other hand did!!! Take all the roller coasters in the world and multiply by 10 and you might come close to the ups and downs Steve and I shared in the 25+ years of friendship. If I wrote a book on it it would be longer than War In Peace. Steve and I had a unique friendship, many if not most of his family members I have never met but I do know all about ya'll. Steve, I miss you. RIP my friend and i look forward to seeing you.....crying my eyes out....can't stop the tears

    Steve was the best stepdad anyone could ever ask for. He was so loving and generous to so many others. He even was so brave and kind enough to teach me how to drive. I had never drove before, at that moment, yet he was so selfless and taught me. He made my Mom happy, and gave his heart to her. I am and will be forever thankful to him for making one of the most important women in my life, the most happiest woman on earth. Love you Steve so so much and miss you❤️

    Traveled cross- country one time on the way to NC and the mountains ate the brakes on my truck. Showed up late ar night and told him what happened. In a very Steve way, he said "hmmph." Turned around and grabbed the phone. We were not even finished with hellos and he had me set up with a shop, tools, and a helper and we had it repaired by midnight.

    Have great memories of cruising around in Steve's 1963 VW Beetle back in the day in Florissant, MO. Brings a smile to my face...and I hope to Steve's as well. RIP my friend.
