I'm so sorry for the loss of Steve. We met many years ago when he was a zoning inspector for Plain Township and I am the zoning inspector for Jackson Township. He was a good person and friend. May he rest in peace in the heavens above. Bless you all.

Cheryl and family,
I’m not sure if you remember me. You gave me piano lessons at Gulia Music quite a few years ago. I just wanted to let you know I’m sorry for the passing of your husband, Steve.
You were a wonderful piano teacher and I’ve thought of you often. I’m 65 now. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

I was so shocked when I heard the terrible news about the passing of Steve.
All of us that attended St. Josephs together have so many memories of our school years as classmates and Steve was definitely a part of those happy memories.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family during this time of sorrow.
