Steve's Funeral


Steve passed away on 9/18 and when I was typing "Steve's Funeral" as the header, it was shocking to me. I can't believe he's gone. It's so hard. I think of him daily.

The first picture of the flower was taken after the service. Gabby, my nieces daughter, asked "Should we pick flowers for him?".  The last photo is a flag out side the restaurant we went to after for a tribute lunch. They asked about the purple "S" pins were we all wearing and when they leaned the story behind them, they put their flag out to honor him. That was so nice!

"Should we pick flowers for him?" - Gabby

I made "S" pins for everyone. Purple was his favorite color.
