Jerry you know how much Steve meant to me. He was a friend when I needed one back in the day. May God be with you and Mr. Elwood. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as well as Brenda and her son.

Steve was one of the first people i was introduced to back in 1994 when i started. Keeping with a prison theme and simply said, I miss my friend, from the Shawshank Redemption. Steve was more than a friend to me and will always be remembered in my heart and mind. RIP my friend and God bless your family as my thoughts and prayers will always remain there for you all.
