James & Georgia, you have wonderful memories of Steve and I know he remains in your hearts. God bless you both and the entire Little family!
I met Steve at Iowa State where I was a student athletic trainer. Steve was a not only a great Cyclone, but a great man. He was a class act and represented the Little name well.
Thank you everyone for all of your kind words about my father. Words cannot adequately express how much he is missed. I think about him all of the time and it has been very hard. My dad and I were very close and I miss our daily chats and his silly and fun personality. While I would do anything to have more time with my dad, I know he is in a better place now and no longer in pain. I still talk to him and pray for him. My dad taught me so much, but most of all to be a good person. He was so proud of all of us and he always let us know how much he loved us. I feel so blessed to have countless good memories of my dad, he was always there for us. I miss him so much. He is the greatest dad.
Steve's passing has been difficult for all of us. We all prayed for a miracle but that was not to be, but we all know that God has his own plan. Steve accomplished so much while he was here, living many of his 52 years happy, healthy and so full of life and energy. Those are the memories I have collected over the past 30 years that I choose to keep close. Most enduring was Steve's everlasting love for his family. I have so many fond memories of Steve, like our shared love of cooking and fine food but the last conversation that we had was a much more philosophical one. It was about the things that he was most proud of. That conversation was all about his four beautiful and accomplished girls.
Steve was an amazing, fun and loving person that loved to give, especially advice. I thank Steve for being part of our lives and enriching all of us. I know that today Steve is in a much better place still looking over his family. I know that it will be him leading the way for them. Our angel in heaven. I miss so much about Steve, his calls and texts, always starting off with "Sister in law", but he is on to bigger things in his afterlife. Steve was more than my Brother in law, Steve was my friend and I miss him.
Thank you all for the beautiful and heartfelt expressions of love for Steven Douglas Liitle. Steven has been with The Lord one month ago on Friday. He was such a great father- he so loved our girls! What a blessing Steven was also a wonderful and supportive husband, brother, son, and friend. We all miss him. So thank you for supporting us through our grief.
