So sorry to hear this. We love u guys! I will never forget your wedding.
Thank you Donna. The wedding was so fun.
Steve was a man I really only knew more of personally for the last year, as he was a grandfather to both of my granddaughters whom I have guardianship over. I can only say good things about this man as he was a kind, loving, and friendly individual who was dearly loved by those two girls, Jadyn and Haley. He will be missed by me and all who knew him. God speed Steve.
My Father -in-law will be dearly missed by our family. He was a rock for his Wife Vicky and his kids. His Grandchildren adored him!! I loved him and greatly admired him. Dad, You will be dearly missed by all. Rest in Peace Dear Father.
So sorry for your loss. May you experience
God’s presence and peace.
Sorry to hear this, worked with him many years RIP my friend…
