Hi Dad. Steevo here. I'm going to miss the way you were always there to help Mom, Cindy and I whenever we needed you. I'm going to miss your "glass-half-full" way of thinking and the way you could always see the bright side of things. I'm going to miss your "every cloud has a silver lining" way of being positive. I'm going to miss the way you could always make us smile and laugh no matter what the circumstances were. But most of all, I'm going to miss the way you turned every day into a sunny day. We love you Dad.


-Mary, Cynthia and Stephen.
