Dennis, Sandy and Family,I am so sorry for the loss of your dear brother. I have known Steve as a neighbor, friend and resident at Pine Haven. He was such a nice guy, always appreciative and kind. I will sure miss him even his teasing me when I had a birthday 2 weeks before him, he always caught up to me though. I have a lot of fond memories of Steve. May he rest in peace. God Bless you all.
