I would like to express my sympathy to Steve's family. Our life's paths crossed at Bridger Coal. He was a special member of that family, also. I will always remember him from those days at BCC and the few times we shared conversation at the reunion picnics. May God bless you & give you the strength to move on.

I am saddened to hear of Steve's passing. He was always a fun and easy person to know. I thank him for his friendship while I was a teenager and a young adult. May his love and your memories help keep you during this difficult time and through the days that follow.
