    So sorry for the loss of Steve , he was like family to me and Bob, cause he was with my sister Michelle for like 20 years. He was a great guy. If we needed Steve for any type of help he would come and help us, with shoveling off roofs or doing yard work or helping fix something. He did it for us. His sons HelpEd too. He enjoyed life a lot. He would get us wood when we needed it.
    Your Steve will be deeply missed. God bless the family.
