    Nothing could ever prepare anyone for something as tragic as this. I know that there are so many memories with your dad you’ll miss. When your heart hurts, my heart hurts too. But don’t be worried because I’m with you. You are surrounded by family and friends with love and care to lend. Wonder is where time and space bend. Looking down from all of heavens ends.

    • To Chris and Shawn and Justin and Cyndy and all the friends and family and me my deepest sympathy goes out to us all.
      Such a sudden and unfortunate incident of a loss of a wonderful person. I knew Steve very well and he was a great person. Anytime he was asked anything he would say sure no problem. He would always go out of his way to help people. I saw Steve every day and he was very smart,strong and dependable. He is a great man we have so unexpectedly lost About 10 yrs ago on the job he was nicknamed Stevie Wonder and it stuck so on the job he was known as “Wonder”
      I am really gone to miss him.
      God bless you all.
