I'll never understand why you were taken away so suddenly and so quickly. I'll forever hold on to the memories we have and carry on your spirit for the rest of my life. I'll miss you every day and always carry endless love in my heart for you.

I love you so much dad and miss you terribly.

I was in school with Steve K-12th, great guy. Wish we had been in contact through the years. I remember him as an athletic, friendly, bright young man. I have a copy of our 1960 kindergarten class picture I could forward via email to the family if they do not have it.

My sincere condolences. Chip
