Steve was one of my “longest-time” friends met him when I was 16. I am so sad that we did not have more time to visit in the last few years, but do cherish some talks during his illness. My thoughts and prayers are certainly with all family members, many of whom I met his graduation weekend. May God hold you all close. Blessings, Kathy Kummer Beagles
