Stephen,
You are now in heaven and now you know the depths of how deep my love for you ran. My heart is so broken and missing you terribly. You are the other half of my heart and now I grieve selfishly because I want you back more than you know. I know you suffered and battled everyday. I never knew how deep that struggle ran. I will love you forever and look for you everywhere. I will see you later my beloved brother. I hope now you can rest in peace from your pain now. May God lift you up and surround you now more than ever. You are so loved my sweet bubbie.
Eternally loved and missed,
Your Juju

I met Steve over a year ago and he immediately became a close friend. He had been through and overcome so much that when we talked 2-3 times a week for over a year we were able to relate to so much trials we had over come as well as the debilitating heartache we had both endured. He was a voice of reason and optimism when life and the world around it seemed dark and hopeless, and I was always there when he need a voice of reason through his many battles. I know as the cliche goes he’s in a better place, but there was nothing he loved more than living and making the most out of life. I can say with the utmost certainty that if I could trade place with him I would in a heartbeat because he exemplified so much more than I ever could have in this life. But because I am still here and he is not, then I owe it to him to carry on his legacy and do as much good as he did for other. Rest easy brother.

This picture is from my baby shower in 2007. Steve helped throw this surprise shower for me. THIS is exactly the type person he was and just how big his heart was. He also used to bring me food from Double T when I was pregnant and wanted to eat everything on the menu 🤣. In my late teens and early twenty’s, Steve was like a second brother to me. Steve was my brothers friend but then become mine. We would hang out and I would go see him at his various jobs like Fridays, Double T, and (the crab cake place lol). He drove me crazy (I’m sure I got on his nerves too lol) but we loved each other nonetheless just like real siblings.

I’ve always been the type to suppress my emotions, but this has been difficult. Steve, you are loved and already missed.

To be absent of the body is to be present with the Lord.

To many to list. I'll just say this, Steve was a Real friend . If he liked you he loved you, if he didn't like you well you knew it . I have a lot of memories with Steve . We met around the early 90's, just fresh out of middle school. Steve was the type of dude that would do anything for you and you could always count on him if you needed anything. That being said I will miss his laugh, his chuckle and his true friend ways. Thanks Steve for being a good dude . Until we meet again !
