We are so heart broken. We are thinking and praying for all of you in this time of need.
Steve will never ever be forgotten. He was one of the most kind gentle and respectable person we have ever known. Whenever you called him he was ready to help. My home was the first home he designed landscaping and was very proud.
Every time I look outside at my white birch trees ,my Japanese oak and my magnolia I will think only good loving thoughts of the kind gentle soul. Will love you and never forget you Steve
