As Steve and I have a mutual Granddaughter, Quinn, I have always been impressed by his dedication and unconditional love of her. She told me about his making pancakes, and a number of other dishes, just for her. At Quinn's recent Halloween Musical he expressed, for everyone, that she was the most beautiful on stage. She Steve...and me...and everyone who loves her. Steve was the one to express it out loud. I know he will be missed, but I also know the love (from and for him) will never stop.
