Loring Family, I was blessed in getting to know Steve after I started going to dances with Bonny Swart. He was one of the ‘crowd’ & I soon got to be one with Steve. I loved his sense of humor & his enjoyment in being around those of us in this dancing circle. I miss him since he had to drop out & am very saddened at his passing. My most sincere condolences go out to all of you. I noted that one of your family members was my neighbor on the farm. A special note of sympathy to you Linda, Mike & Jason.
