    Aunt Sharon, Colleen and Tim and families. Our thoughts and prayers are with you from Florida. Uncle Steve was such a big part of my life. When my kids were small I'd hear a knock on the door early Saturday morning, there he would be to surprise us with a box of jelly donuts! He was one of a kind. Peace to you in Heaven Uncle Steve. We Love you ❤️
