We have lost a most special man, filled with love and good will, a gifted teacher, and a dear friend.
You were blessed, Steve, to have spent part of your life with him and to have shared the restoration of the home that you both cherished. And he was blessed to have had you in his life during the most challenging and trying times. There is, indeed, a reason for everything. Please take care of yourself at this time of profound loss.
