Steve was both friend and family. It is with sadness that we must say good bye. Steve was adventurous and fun loving, we spent many hours four wheel driving in the North Georgia mountains. He had a love for shooting the mountain rapids in canoes and also fishing in Florida. I shared many days with Steve and his mom and dad, and his sister Marilyn. We all enjoyed Martie's southern home cooking around the dinner table. Thanks for all of the memories ya'll, Until we meet again........Ron
