Jan and family, I am so sorry for you loss. I knew Steve well at Amway. He was a good person and friend.
Jan and girls,
My heart broke to hear of Steve’s passing. I have shared with so many people over the years what a huge part both of you played during a difficult time in my life. You taught me many life lessons and altered my path in such a positive way. I wish I would have shared that with Steve when I had the opportunity. Jan I hope your heart is comforted to know just how loved you are. Heaven called home a most amazing angel.
