    39 years together… Wow! Not many folks get to spend 39 years with a faithful partner any more.
    I love you Steve and wish you the best as you deal with all of this. I’ll be glad to help out if you need anything.

  2. Jim and Mary Shafer

    We were shocked and saddened when we heard the news of the loss of your wife. We did not know she was sick. We wish you and your family well during this difficult time. Our prayers go out to you.

  3. Janie Williams Swanson
