    I am so sorry for your loss! Steve was always so nice and sweet. You both lit up the store when you came in. He always had a kind word and a smile when buying feed for the chickens. Hudson’s won’t be the same without seeing him several times a week.

    I met Steve and Diane while conducting a business transaction and they instantaneously became a friends. I enjoyed stopping by their home for a casual visit. Steve always had something witty to say and loved to laugh. I will miss that smile and the laughter as well as his kind gentle soul. Rest in peace my friend. Diane may God give you an inner peace of knowing you will be with him again one day in heaven.

    I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of cousin Steve. I so much enjoyed going down to Archer Lodge and hunting with Steve and Mike and Uncle Slim. Steve’s smile and laughter is a carbon copy of Uncle Slim. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
