Although the time I had to get to truly know you was short lived in the grand scheme of our lives; I have nothing but the fondest mormories of our times together.
The excitement I felt when first the opportunity came to be that I’d finally meet you face-to-face (and the entire “other side” of my family) still lingers on within me to this day.
As I came to know you, I considered you a man of intellect, pride, and certainly humor -probably my favorite thing about you. You were also the first man that I had ever met who truly had any “authority” over my father -your kid brother. That was awesome to behold.
Although we may not have spoken as much as we would have liked over the years, and although life certainly has a way of speeding up on us, I am thankful for every kindness, care, and act of generosity you added into my life.
It was truly a year of great loss having lost both my father and now you, but I can rest a little easier knowing you are both together after long last, as it was in th beginning.
My mother and my own hearts go out to the Steinle family in your neck of the woods; and to April, Dave, Jeff, Crystal and all the “kids”....... we miss and love you dearly.
Truly a great man, and truly a great loss.
We are always here if you need us.
Sharon and Marcus Steinle
