I would like to extend my sympathy to Steve’s family on his passing. I was fortunate to have crossed paths with Todd, Sue, and Steve many years ago. I enjoyed my time spent with Todd’s family. I recall one Christmas evening spent at Mr. and Mrs. Taylor’s house (Todd’s grandparents). The laughs, the funny gift exchanges, and the warmth of their house was a joy to experience. Steve was blessed with a great family and I know they felt blessed to have him. I will continue to pray for strength and healing for everyone in the days and weeks ahead. God Bless, Andrea Litton-Houston
