My deepest sympathy to all the Kenderes family. There wasn´t a day gone by that Steve didn´t share whatever he was cooking for the day with me. Pretty much everyday, Lucille would cut through our joined yards to deliver his stuffed cabbage, mashed potatoes, spaghetti, nut rolls, apricot rolls, homemade jelly or basically whatever was on the menu for the day. He was the best "meals on wheels" cook for many people. He would always call to make sure it was ok and if I enjoyed it. When Steve and Lucille were out running errands, always brought me something from McDonalds to make sure I was taken care of. Notorious for dropping off a cup of custard for dessert. One could never ask for such kind and thoughtful neighbors. Thank you all for your generosity over the many many years as neighbors. You will be missed.
