    Such a good man, just like his Dad. Family were friends for years! I was a year older than Steve but our parents being friends we enjoyed Bluebrid meetings at the house. Mason functions. Always used Richardson insurance for our cars. Steve was a friendly man always happy to see me walk into the office. Rest in Peace and enjoy Heaven ❤️Liz Montgomery Maher Prayers for the family.
