My dear brother-in-law Steve. We will miss you so much. You were the best thing that ever happened to my sister Linda. Unfortunately you were taken from us all too soon. Jim and I are so grateful for the wonderful times we shared with you and your family. Your amazing wedding in Mexico. Being able to witness the love you shared was a wonderful gift. I know you are looking down at all your loved ones. Give them the strength they need to get thru this difficult time. You will be so missed.
