Always enjoyed our discussions about the bible and life and times in the Air Force at RAF Benterwaters/RAF Woodbridge.
I missed picking Steve up for our Wednesday morning Bible studies at St. Martha's. Tipping a scotch or two and just good old BS. Steve will be missed by many of us. Blessings on you and the family Rita.
