    Steven was a blessing to our family, always there for someone even as a a child. He will be missed by all that knew him. He had such a contagious laugh and a loving personality. We are so grateful for the time we had spent with him either by visits or the long lengthy telephone calls to let him know what was happening up north and to see how he was doing. Bless you my dear Steven we love you ever so much.
