Earlier this month, the world lost another beautiful soul. My Uncle Steve passed away on November 2nd, 2016; another victim of the horrible consequences of cancer. Steve was a brilliant man and, boy, could he tell a story. He could take something mundane and weave it into a heroic tale. One of my favorites was about an epic battle he eventually won with a squirrel at their cabin.
I didn't get to spend as much time with my Uncle Steve as I would have liked, but I am glad he is no longer suffering. My mom and dad got to spend some time with him in his last days and from what they said he seemed to be at terms with his situation, ready to become part of the universe again. He was such an amazing person and it's a shame we had to lose him so soon. We're going to miss you Steve but will love you forever.
