IN MY LAST CONDOLENCE, I FORGOT TO SAY THIS: AS WE ALL SHOUT HALLELUJAH TO THE HEAVENLIES TOGETHER, THEN THIS IS UNITY, AND WHERE THERE IS UNITY, GOD, JESUS, & THE HOLY SPIRIT'S PRESENCE IS!! REMEMBER THE KEY TO GOD'S HEALING POWER IS UNITY IN PRAYER & PRAISE & WORSHIP- " WHERE TWO OR MORE ARE GATHERED IN MY NAME..., IT SHALL BE DONE"

Spending so much time with him and aunt Mary growing up, it felt truly like having two fathers. There was mine, then "uncle Steve". Of all the years being around him, virtually every memory is a very happy one. As much as I *hate* having pictures taken of me to this day, my favorite ones of my entire life happen to be my baptism on May 2nd, 1986, him holding me in his full uniform. It seemed to me in all those years every radio around him just happened to be tuned to a country music station, and those memories gave me a love of that music today. He had the perfect blend of both tough, and sweet, with the kindness and his laughter always coming out ahead. No one else's passing in years has hit me the way his does. I can't put in words just how much I'm going to miss him.

I love you Mary! You know Mom and I were never very good at this kind of thing. Steve was as kind and as comforting to me as anyone that I’ve ever know. He was intelligent, skilled at everything he tried to do, and was as hard a worker as anyone I’ve ever met. it hasn’t been fair to him suffering for the last 10+ years not being able to do what he loved to do. He has inspired me to be a better person and to attempt things that I would have never attempted. He was always good for a laugh and could always be counted on in a pinch. He is one of the best men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and lucky for all of us he was family. I’ll miss him always, but will take comfort in the fact that he can do what he wants to do without suffering his failing body. I know i will see him again, unless I don’t make the cut for heaven because I am sure that he has earned his ticket. I’m soooooo sorry Mary, but thank you for brining a great man into our family, and sharing your love with the rest of us.

Mary, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. I never really knew the man but I knew you and wanted to offer my condolences to you and the rest of the family. I've tried reaching you on Facebook a while back but don't know whether you got my messages. Hoping you get in touch with me in the future to talk about old times. Rick Hecht
