    Uncle Steve was the best uncle. There are so many memories of time spent with him. He will be missed more than he could have imagined. From rides on the motorcycle for weekend sleep overs to building my Barbie mansion to mexican breakfast on the weekends. He always made sure to ask how I was doing and how work was going. You will forever be missed but never forgotten.
