During his fight with brain cancer, Steve requested these words be included in his obituary. Tell your kids that they have grown to be so much more than you have ever expected. Love your pets and when you find yourself purchasing more pet food, purchase extra to donate to a local animal shelter for those that do not yet have that love in their lives. Hold your wife's hand and tell her everyday how beautiful she is. Be safe, be kind and be happy.
