Steve, I love you. You left me so suddenly, without any warning. But i'll be ok. Family and friends have been there for me thru this. It's hard to go on without you, It's supposed to be me and you forever. " After All"

I could not have asked for a better father and grandfather (Papa) for our girls. You did and would do anything and everything for us. You loved us all Mom, Matt, Madison and Mallory unconditionally. Your smile is all I see when I think of you right now, it's the only thing bringing me peace at this time.... I believe it's for a reason. Your baby girl is completely heart broken, you are gone way to soon. But I am thankful and truly blessed to have had you as my father. I love you so much and will miss you everyday, until we are together again. Keep smiling for me.
Love your baby girl
Tay xoxo

Steve we were just shy of having 65 years together. Where one was , the other wasn’t far behind . We both lost brother Ralph in 2018 to many illnesses. This has been a total shock I would’ve wanted any other phone call than this one . I’ll never forget either of you , I lost two brothers and two best friends...
