I am very sorry for your loss. Steve and I were classmates starting in grade school at Colt school in Litchfield, il. He was truly one of the good guys.

Steve was my first cousin about 3 years younger than me. We grew up on the same little farm near Litchfield, IL. What fun we had! Steve was absolutely devoted to Mary and his family. He was a good man.
