To the family, particularly Steve and Heather who I rremember well, you have my sympathy regarding the passing of your father. I saw the post on Steve's FB page and recognized the photo as Heather's father. Until yesterday, I never knew Steve and Heather were siblings. I only knew them separately. I wish you peace and comfort at this time and will remember you in my prayers.
