    To Steve’s family,
    I went to school with Steve at Clinton Prairie and of course we were part of the class of 1969. I do not recall seeing Steve at any of our reunions but I remember him well from CP. I remember Steve having a quiet demeanor at times, but he also had a smile and was friendly. I often wondered where the road of life took Steve. As I read…. it sounds like Steve had a full life and was content. I know you will miss him and I pray for God’s strength and healing of your brokenness as you find a new normal without your loved one. Remember him and share your memories often.
