    It has been so long since I’ve spent any time with Steve and Mary, however the heartache I felt when I heard of Steve’s passing was unreal. I will always remember him as such a fun loving loyal friend. My heart goes out to the Evans family at this time….. “Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard but always near. Still loved, still missed, and held so dear.”
