Steve was a wonderful, caring, compassionate neighbor. He had a very deep love for animals and we found a lot of common ground in caring for the abandoned and abused cats in our neighborhood. We'll miss him. His passing brought forth good memories of times past and also that of his mother, Ruth, whom we also had the pleasure of knowing shortly before her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Sandy. May you have peace in knowing that Steve is no longer suffering.
