Steve once told us, ” What you see is what you get” Steve didn’t sugar coat his words. Steve was one of the hardest workers I’ve ever known. Seems he was always helping someone. He was always working “to make the BEST Better”

Linda, Cindy, & Tim: It saddened me so much when Cindy told me what happened. I liked visiting with him so much. As I told Cindy the other day, me and him were a lot a like. To old born and raised farm boys, with nothing to prove to anybody. Even if i did’nt see him that offten, I will miss his conversation very, very much. Be assured their was a place for him up above If there is anything we can do to help you out, just ask. Even in days to come if there is anything, let us know. God bless you all!
