Steve was a wonderful guy. Me and Steve grew up together many years ago, with four brothers and two sisters. And a lot of nieces and nephews. His son, David Waver, is a fireman and he knows me from Holy Childhood. Steve's wife, Barb, is a wonderful woman who took care of him for many years. Steve always made me feel special by remembering my birthday. I'm sorry I couldn't make it to the funeral. I would like a prayer card.
