I shall always treasure my memories of Steve:
our times of worship, fellowship with he, Patty, their children and half the church after worshipping at Hamilton Street Baptist, hearing Steve playing piano and organ, hearing him singing, watching him beat me at golf, working together at our business, and many other things.
I especially remember him praising God with his testimony of God's Amazing Grace as he saved and transformed his life!
To God be the glory, great things He hath done.
