A life is not a slash between two numbers.
It is every word we think or speak.
It is every indescribable feeling we experience.
It is a story that never ends when our lives come to a close.
It is every choice we choose.
It is every impact we’ve made.
It is every mind we change.
It is everything we’ve learned and all the mistakes that we’ve made.
It is everything we’ve created with our very souls.
It is the gift that cannot be repaid
It is the love in our blood.
It is the hearts that we’ve entered, and the holes that we leave.
It is NOT a slash between two numbers, or our names left on a stone, because what makes it so special is that it is never forever.
It is a life.

Steve was such a great friend during my time in Maryland. Steve and I were as close as could be through our years together at North Bethesda JH and WJ High School. He was such a great person with a caring sprit. He was a gentle soul and will be missed. My condolences to Jenny, Chris, and Adrian. I know you are devastated at your loss.
Throughout high school we had so many great times with Charlie, Eric, and all our other friends. Working together at the Exxon in Wildwood and the KB Theatres we met great people and shared fond memories. The concerts we saw were legend!!
You will be missed my friend.
RIP and God Bless.
