Laura and family, we are so sorry to hear of the illness and death of your brother. Prayers for all of you, Cheryll and Buddy Fochtmann
My husband and I rescued Diabla, Steve's dog. He adopted her in 2008, and she was so fortunate to have gotten a home with him. We know how much he loved her. We hope she ends with another great home; although, I know she will miss her daddy. Steve was so kind to adopt her at Pet Smart on that Saturday so long ago.
Steve was taken from us way to soon. He had a huge heart and always treated everyone as a friend. His gentleness with the patients always set him apart from others. He always spoke of his family and how much you all meant to him.. He will always be a bright light in my life and I am a better person for knowing him. He will always put a smile on my face when I hear someone trying to learn Spanish. It was a painful few months when he was trying to learn it. God bless and rest in peace, you'll always be in my heart.
I wanted to tell Steve's Dad and Mom what a great job they did coming down helping Steve over these last difficult months. I know it was hard for you, but he really appreciated you being here for him. Steve was a wonderful, easy going, professional to work with. He cared about his patients and he treated them with and gentle care. He always treated my team with respect and never raised his voiced. May he rest in peace. We will miss him.
I loved Dr Steve so much. He was an awesome man and I was lucky to get to work with him these past four years. He was well liked and admired by all who knew him. I will miss him so much...and sure he is enjoying his Diet Pepsi and watching over all of us. RIP Dr Steve!
Carolyn, Jim, Beth, Jimmy, and Cara. The Vordenberge cousins, Steve always in our hearts and never forgotten. God bless
To Steven Rolfes family;
Take comfort in the promise God gives us, that one day,
no resident will say "I am sick" but all can look forward
to the opportunity to live forever. (John 17:3)
