    Steve and I were really close until he had to move to AZ. Sadly, we lost touch and went our separate ways. I will always remember the great times we had. The sleepovers and playing in the woods of lower Davis Addition. Antogizing a few of our teachers at the intermidiate school (putting it nicely). Just having fun being kids.

    RIP Steve. I am lucky to have known you for the little time I did.
