STEVE: Thank you very much for being such a great friend to me, I will miss you very much. You always welcome the Elzen family, to your camp ground at the Remer cabin, taking us fish on Lake Milton and laughing when we got our lines tangled on that NSP lines. And sitting by the camp fire, waving and yelling at the cars when they drove by. Most of all Steve taking time out of your day to come and spend the afternoon with me when I was laid up, and playing dominos. You were the BEST friend! We shared some good talks, I will miss you, but I know you are resting, and will be watching over Lisa, and the rest of your family, and hope that you will watch over the rest of us too......... THANK YOU FOR BEING A TRUE FRIEND. LOVE JEAN AND WALLY ELZEN AND KIDS.
