Truly my heart is sadden to hear about the passing of Steven. He kept up the fight for as long as he could. When Steven and his wife came to visit their daughter and family in El Paso, TX, he invited my husband and I over for dinner. We had a great time. That was in 2014 or 15. A really nice person has left from our class. My prayers go out to his family and may they find comfort and  peace  knowing  that he is no longer suffering.
