    I remember Steve from Waterloo High School and I saw him  at the Shelter House at the park in Waterloo with brother Lee., for the Richland Reunion. What I remember most aboout Steve is his smile and laughter. He just had the biggest smile (grin) of anyone I ever met. His laugh was just as memorable. I will miss that infectous laugh and his wonderful smile.

    Kris ~ please know we have been praying for your family for the last year after meeting you in Cleveland.  We will ride in the Pan Ohio ride this year in memory of Steve.  May the Lord continue to comfort you in the time of sadness & the ability to rejoice knowing Steve has won his battle and is in the arms of Jesus.

    God Bless You & the family

    Dear Kris and daughters,
      What of any comfort does one say or do at a time like this? I cannot even express how terrible I feel for all of you. Also for Steve's friends, including myself, for having lost yet another good friend.
      Please at least accept my condolences and best wishes for each of you, going forward.

    Kris, Sarah, Katey

    We at Concordia are so sad that Steve lost his battle with leukemia, but like you, we know he won the battle over death because of Jesus ... Steve's unwavering faith in Jesus' ability to save! Ultimately, that's the battle that matters! We share your profound sadness and loss, but despite that terrible pain, we share your certain hope of a blessed reunion with God, with you and with all the faithful. We pray that hope you have does not waver, that God strengthen it, and that more and more through time and God's work your hope will be realized! Count on our love, our prayers and our support! God bless

    Sending you all positive thoughts and prayers.   Steve comes from some very "sturdy & stuborn" stock.   If he is anything like his dad .. and Mom   (and I know he is)...  he will beat this and be around to for a very long time.    Please let him know I'm thinking of him and thank him again for coming up when my Mom passed.  It was sure great to see him!!!

    Hi Steve and Kris,

    It sounds like you have turned the corner Steve which is great news. Its seems I was alot luckier than you were because I did not have the sores in my mouth and throat and it seems that my transplant was overall easier than yours. I am sure that has alot to do with host versus graft.

    Kerry and I knew you were strong enough to make it through the transplant and we are happy to hear  that you will be going to the lodge soon. We look forward to visiting you and Kris there whenever you are ready for visitors.

    We continue to keep you, Kris and the girls in our prayers.

    Thanks for the update. You all remain in our prayers. I hope that in some ways the last 4 weeks have gone somewhat quickly. It's a long, hard haul.

    Continued prayers are being offering for you. We also pray many blessings for you and your "girls" - ALL of them! :) Don't let your brain rot watching too much TV. Now that the Stanley Cup play-offs are done, there's little good to watch!! :) Take care; hang in; keep the faith, man!

    Good morning Stevie,
    I hope I find you in good spirits and feeling much better.  Just to let you know, everyone at Morrill Motors, RBC, and the Haas household, pray for a quick and full recovery for you.

    I am attending a retirement dinner for Tom in Johnson City on June 22nd.  He doesn't know it, but it's a roast.  We will miss you not being there, but you can be in spirit.  Please send me some of "crazy" things that you remember about Tom.  I am going to tell about Tom knowing every Dairy Queen location west of the Mississippi River. 

    We all miss you.  Talk to you later
