My first memory of my good friend and neighbor was when I was four. Mom told me a boy named Steve was waiting under a tree across the street for me to wake up and play in the woods. We played in that woods for many years. I am so very sad to hear Steve has left this world to be in heaven - hope to join him someday and play in that woods together again.
