I have known Steve since our Freshman year of high school. There was a short period of time where l had a little crush on him. Later in life, he became family when my brother married his sister Sandy. I will always choose to remember him in our younger days, when things were not so complicated, when we were light-hearted and care free. I can see us and Steve’s smile is touching my heart strings. A couple months ago l ran into him at a store and we hugged before we said goodbye. I am happy to have that as my last memory shared with him. Sandy, Mike and Amy, l am praying you through this most difficult time. Rest in peace Steve, and thank you for your service to our country. ❤️❤️
