It's almost a year since you left us. I find myself picking up the phone to call you and tell you all the stuff that's going on and then realize you won't be picking up the phone anymore. I miss my best friend. I miss my dad. My heart hurts a little less knowing that you send me signs and you're watching over us. What I wouldn't do to just have you back even for a moment. I love you and miss you more and more as days go by. Till we meet again pops. Your pumpkin..

Always my brother, forever my friend. I will miss you deeply Steve, but you will always be in my heart and thoughts. My only regret is that I didnt get to see you as much as I would have liked. When we were together we had a good time. You were always so happy and lived life to its fullest. I loved to hear you laugh. Im sorry I wasnt always there for you, but I thought of you often. Heaven will never be the same now that you, Sandy, mom and dad are there partying together. I love you little brother. Rest In Peace.

Although I didn't know him that well, my Dad would say that Stevie lived life to the fullest and always wanted to have a good time. Those are great qualities to have. My heart goes out to his family during this difficult time. May he rest in peace. Much love - Rich Cody
