    So saddened & shocked to hear of cousin Steve’s passing. Everytime when Steve came home, he always had time to stop by. Always enjoyed my talks with him. He had a natural smile that would light up any place where he was at. Now it will light up heaven. Well cousin, although you won’t be coming home this way again….you most certainly are going to a higher, beautiful home…the biggest palace in the entire world. So long.
