In memory of Uncle Steve!
He is a Son, Brother, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, Godfather, and Friend. He has touched many people in many different ways. Many memories include camping, Mrs. Apache, cookouts and fun.
He loved to go camping, and took his family to many different places this way. He enjoyed family time and had many cookouts in his back yard, there was nothing to small to celebrate in the backyard. He loved to build things with wood. If you look around his home there are many different things he built, and if you ask any members of the family we all have at least 1 ornament he made for our Christmas trees. He also liked to take pictures, some of my memories have him with his 35mm on his neck and taking many pictures of thing happening in his life along with friends and family's. He didn't always say I love you to us but we all know he did very much. He showed his love in many different ways.
Together with Aunt Karen he showed his family love and commitment. Together they have 4 children and have taught them many lesson's in life. Thru them and his grandchildren they will pass on his love and life lesson's.
How do you say good-bye to some one who you thought would be there forever? You don't you say we will meet again in heaven. It is never good-bye but you can say i will see you when i get were i am going.
His memory lives in everyone of you in some way. We all have a story to tell that involves him whether it is funny, heart touching or just one of those stories. He will live on forever in everyone of us and we will have story's to pass on for generations to come. Like the saying gone but never forgotten, we will never forget.
I know you are up in heaven looking down smiling on all of us watching and keeping us all safe, along side Grami and Grampi.
We love you very much and will see you again one day!!!
