    Steve was my mother’s (Thora) brother in law. My mother is Kay and Karol’s sister. So Steve was my Uncle and I was blessed to meet him a few times when I was very young. My brothers are Steve and Jay. My sister is Tracey. My mother, brother (Steve) and sister all live in Trinidad, Co. Jay has moved to Seattle. I am living in Denver. I am saddened by this news. I pray for the family, Kay, Heather and Seth.
