Larry, Philip, Spencer and to the rest of the Brown Family... though its been 35 years or more, Ill never forget the many fond moments, life lessons & positive support that Steve gave to me when I was being the typical teenager. One of the nicest people Ive ever been lucky enough to have known. I am praying for all of you in this difficult time. May his soul rest in peace.
