My sincerest sympathies and condolences to his many friends and family. I met Steven at Charlie's Pub and we instantly became friends. We shared many long talks, pool games and many nights I gave him a ride home. He shared his fabulous poetry with me and I will miss his loving personality and tender heart. Rest easy my friend your struggles are over. ❤

Share A memory? There's not enough space on the internet to share all the memories packed into the years of friendship I've have with Steve. So many inside jokes, so many thoughts and dreams shared.... right now, there's still the stun of the news that he's not here any more.
Words cannot express what's going on in my heart and head, but I am comforted by the knowledge that this only goodbye for awhile. We will meet again. Until then, I'll cherish every memory....
May the Lord bless and keep you Hambrick Family and make His Face to shine upon you....and give you peace and comfort as only He can. (Num. 6:24)

I can't believe you are gone. You have always been a great friend and you will always be near and dear to my heart. I have so many memories of you that there is not enough time to mention all of them but here is a few. As children we always loved to go under the porch and play with the school bus, weeble wobbles, and that silly sock monkey. We would go up to the third floor where the ballroom was and I would get into your moms ballroom dresses and we would just dance. We would climb the pinetree all the way to the top so that en the wind blew we would sway back and forth. We were a little mischievous to by throwing that white glue substance into the neighbors yard because she wouldn't let us go into her yard to get our ball. I personally think she deserved it because she was really mean. There are so many memories that I could go on and on forever however there is not enough time so my dear friend until we meet again.

Rest In Peace little brother until we see one another again. I will remember all of our fun times as kids and later when we reconnected. I can still hear baby Andy saying, “Duck ahead!” as we passed under the overhead bridge, on the way to Carbide Camp, and how we would all duck our heads down and you would just laugh and laugh. Thank you for all the times at Becky’s when we would sit around and remember our David. Tell him hi and I miss him more than he will ever know. Tell your mom and dad thanks for including me in your family. Rest now little brother in the arms of our Lord. To the family, my prayers are with you all as you say goodbye, for now, to Steve. I look forward to the day when we will all be together again. I love you all! Prayers of peace to the whole family. I love you all, Terri Nugen Alouf
