There was a time in our childhood when Steve and I formed a close bond. It was a difficult time when I thought he needed not only a cousin, but a close friend. However, something even more special happened. Steve ended up helping me through a painful time in my life, so we helped each other. Steve was a very intuitive person and he always knew if someone close to him needed to talk, needed one of his very irresistible smiles, which always lifted your spirits and made you instantly forget your worries or a hug which expressed the feeling, " I am here for you." Steve always made my laugh a little louder, my smile a lot of brighter and my life more memorable. I have an anonymous quote I would like to share with all of my cousins: "Being a cousin means you are part of something wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life. No matter what." I will always remember and miss the infamous "Steve smile." I am very grateful for Aunt Marge and Sharon, as well as Steve's nieces and their children because their love helped make Steve the unforgettable and very special person he was and always will be in our hearts. God Bless you Steve. 
Love, your cousin Debbie, Robert, Kyle, and Kelsey

Steve will always be in my heart and I know he will be watching over all of us. The memories we have of Steve will always be with us. I loved Steve for his wonderful kindness and how fun he was to be around. He always brought sunshine when he walked in a room. We will miss him but never forget him. God Bless You. Love, Aunt Barb

I wanted to share a photo of Steve when he was quite young. The photo is from Sharon's graduation party. My dad was the photographer, and I ended up with the photo. I took the photo with my phone, so the image isn't that clear, and I wanted to explain that. I've tried to upload the photo twice, but it disappears. I'll try one more time. Steve will be greatly missed by our family, and we are all heartbroken.
