Steve and I had some fun times at Penn Manor.  He was a great guy.  May you find comfort in the fond memories that will keep him close to your heart.

I did not know Steven personally, but have known Tammi for a long time.  Through her I knew of his trials.  I know he was dealing with his illness for a long time and how hard he fought.  So for Tammi and the children and grandchildren I wanted to share my sorrow at their loss.  God give you strength and grace during this very emotional time.  Ginny
