I just found out today that Steve passed away and was very shocked and sad to hear the news. Had I know sooner I would have attended the services. Steve and I worked together at Shell Chemical for many years and he taught me many things. It was always a pleasure to work with him and talk with him after his retirement. My sympathies to all of you. I will miss seeing him around.

Dear Uncle Steve, Thanks for being a great uncle and a great godfather. I always enjoyed talking with you, whether it was about, golf or LSU or Saints football, talks about work or life in general, but most of all I enjoyed hearing you tell stories that were just fun to listen to. My most memorable was the one about the waitress at Airline Motors who didn't bring your potato salad with the gumbo that you ordered at the same time.
But more important than the stories was just your overall good example of being a practicing Catholic by attending mass, leading the rosary, and in general just being a very helpful person to your fellow human being. In a lot of ways, you continued in the example set by your father and I know that the example you showed will carry on through others that observed your dedication.

To Aunt Laura and Arlene and family, you know that our hearts are with you and I pray for healing in this time of loss. God will give you strength like he does to the "wings of eagles."

Hello Uncle Steve,
You were always so upbeat, and certainly a terrific uncle. You were always a great brother to mom. I still remember when we all went to Schwegmann's to shop for our bi-weekly shopping trips from Norco (before Walmart was even thought of)and you would drive us.
Please tell mom and dad hello from me. No doubt you will all meet up in a better place than this.
