Steve was such a wonderful uncle. He was there for me when I was going through things with my Dads passing and shared so many memories about his life with me. I enjoyed talking with him and I was looking forward to visiting him in the near future. I’m so saddened that I cannot now, but his memory lives on in our hearts. Family was so important to him, and he often told me time is so precious and we need to make sure we spend it and stay in touch with the people we love. Something we must all remind ourselves of. Although it wasn’t for as long as I had hoped for, I’m so grateful for the time that I was given to be able to know him and have him in my life. And to know the unconditional love of family. That love will live on in my heart forever. Rest Peacefully Uncle Steve. You are forever loved. .
