Steve was one of my favorite (and most enigmatic) people in high school, and we lost him way too soon.

I met Steve in 7th grade at Garner. He was on the basketball team and had a great jumpshot. Off the court, I enjoyed his company all the way through high school. I was living in Houston, attending my first year of law school, when my folks sent me word of his passing. I think that was the first time I realized that we were truly mortal.

Steve was one of my very best friends. He was in my wedding and I was in his. I roomed with Steve and his brother Don for a year while we attended UT.

Steve was one of the kindest and friendliest persons I have ever known.

I miss him.

It has taken me a while to write of Steve as he was also one of my very best friends. We attended Northwood Presbyterian Church together and went EVERY Sunday afternoon to Pioneers together--the youth group.
He was always so kind, sweet and caring. I learned of his death a month after he died as I was recovering from surgery--I will never forget how I felt at that moment--such tremendous sadness. I love and miss you, Steve.
