Steve was family. I always thought he and Bev were my uncle and aunt as they were at all Ferraioli gatherings. You will be dearly missed. You were always genuinely kind, full of joy and laughter.

What will we all do without Steve? He was a brother to us: caring, always generous with his help, never having to be asked. He was one of those people who was always "there" for us. God bless you, Steve and loving prayers for all who love you.
