Sandra, I'm so sorry for your lost. Having talked to Steve a little over a week ago. We talked for over an hour. Only once did he say anything about his condition. We talked about our love of photography. Then about our work at Dana, the crazy place it was. I to wish you and the rest of your family my deepest sympathy.

I have lots of wonderful memories, you all were a 2nd family to me for many years. I may have been around more than you wanted me to be, but was always welcomed as if I was one of your own! The times I had just hanging out at the house or even bailing are some of the best memories I have growing up. Steve never treated me like a kid, I was always on his level and that made what he was saying mean so much more to me! I was a teenage kid and you guys knew how to touch me in a different way than most! Sandy, being at your house was the best, it was almost magical and that's because of you and Steve! Even if we were hiding in the room or basement the magicalness goes clear down to Hollie's clear phone, the satellite we were watching...that was still all because you two! The dinner table was always fun too, sorry if we were a little crazy at times. Thank you so much for all the great memories, sure wish I could have told Steve and not done it here, I pray he knows now anyway. He made such an impact in the lives he touched just passing by, I can but I can't imagine how impactful he was to your lives and my heart breaks for you ALL, I am so very sorry! Sending each of you LOTS of thoughts, hugs, & prayers! May you feel God's comfort & loving embrace a little bit more as you look for His light on the path ahead.
Lots of love,
Sandy & Family,
Betcha our "Granny" was waiting at Heaven's gate for Steve to arrive so they could have a party! Imagine the fun & mischief they are enjoying! Remember, although his body is gone, his spirit will always be with you. No phones needed now, just talk with your hearts.

Stevie Hàrrold was my very first friend! I was heartbroken when his family moved from Churubusco! We were like two peas in a pod. And although we would never be as close again, I was proud to call him my friend. Sandy, you have my deepest sympathy! And know, that there is no better man, than Steve Hàrrold! God Bless!........Huey L, Hazen
