In honor of Steve, such a good guy, a man of courage and strength, who dealt with the hardships of life and set an example for all of us. I am thinking he is now happy to be relieved of all the challenges his mortal body brought him. God bless Steve and his family for their good work.

My dearest Betty and family members. There are no words to describe my feelings at the loss of Steven. I can't pass his room without feeling his presence and missing hearing him say "Grandma". Steven left an amazing impression on my life. His smile was infectious and his sense of humor was beautiful. Thank you for bringing Steven into my life. I will miss him forever but I know he is with God and in peace. This comes with my deepest and most sincere condolences. Special love, Marie "Grandma".
