Steve, we are going to miss our fun family times together. You were the hostest with the mostest! Glad you are not in pain any longer and you need not worry about Denise and the boys because there are so many family and friends to help them through this difficult time. Rest In Peace, dear cousin until we meet again.

I especially remember the first time Steve and Denise came to visit my late husband Chester and I when we moved to Florida. They spent the day on the beach the day before they left. Steve fell asleep in the sun and ended up with severe sunburn! The next morning we had a taxi driver friend Ed drive them to the airport. Steve was burning up red hot from sunburn and just his luck that the A/C in Ed's car did not work on a hot 90 degree plus day ! Steve thought it was another of Chester's jokes, as they would always play tricks and goof on each other. This is the honest and true friendship that they had. I could just imagine their reunion in heaven !
