With my death I have slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name; speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone; wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was; let it be spoken without effort, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.


While we are mourning the loss of our friend,
others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
~John Taylor


Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

~From a headstone in Ireland





My favorite memory of Steve is from back in 1991. His brother Chris and I had gone on a few dates, but we weren't seeing each other exclusively. I had been living at Steve's house and he and I sat drinking one night while Chris was out with another girl. Not much was said, we mostly watched TV., But at one point out of the blue he said to me; "Dolly, For what it's worth I hope he chooses you". It always meant so much to me that I had the approval of Chris' 'Big Brother'. I  will never forget that night, and I will never forget my 'big brother in law'! We love and miss you Steve!



I have a memory.....Though some may think of it as stupid or what have you, It's my memory of my father and the kind of man he was. I was reunited with my father 0ctober 11th, 1998....I'll never forget the day, because it was a day I have been waiting my whole life for......How does one prepare, or what does one say after not seeing a loved one for an 'x' amount of years??? My father took me in his arms, and cried and said..."I missed you son. Glad to have you in my life again" Then we went to a bar that was not far from Tulip ave, where he lived at the time, We both did a shot of J.D., and got a six pack.....And sat and talked for what seemed an eternity....My whole life as I knew it changed forever that day, I had my father back.....DAD....I LOVE YOU NOW, AND I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU...  THIS IS NOT A GOOD BYE, BUT AN I'LL SEE YOU WHEN I GET THERE....HAVE THE POLES READY!!!
Love Eternally....



In the words of NEIL YOUNG one of my fathers favorite performers and (VICTOR KRUGER/THEKURGAN played by Clancy Brown) IT'S BETTER TO BURN OUT THEN TO FADE AWAY:) and he did just that he lived it to the fullest even though some people would disagree with me in some aspect and they would be right but my father did what he wanted pretty much when he wanted and didn't much care about the consequences and in some aspect I admire him for that in the sense he took risks. He was a great man and even though some would say his raising techniques of me and my sisters were wrong but he did his best under circumstances but in the end my father and I settled our differences and departed on a high note
