Back in the day it was such a joy to have Steve show up on the loading truck from Statewide or to run into him at the yard. Steve always had a smile to give and made it easy to find a smile on my own face even when the day was not really smile worthy. I cant wait to meet up again in heaven and hear that laugh!!!

I have so many memories I could leave here. I don't even know how to choose. I loved every time I had the chance to just sit and talk to you. I love sending messages to you and Mom as we watched a Bronco game. We would grumble and cheer. I loved watching the games with you in person more. I'm going to miss that laugh. Especially, when you were laughing at something I said or did that was silly. I loved every brunch we had together. I loved going out to the grasslands to shoots at targets and other crazy things we brought. I miss you, so much. My life will never be the same. I love you.
