Man of faith

I had seen Steve many times at week day masses at IHM but never knew him. Then several months ago I saw him at the Nall walking toward me. We both recognized each other from church and started talking. His faith was so evident and his smile gave me such a warm feeling. Couldn’t believe his age!! He was one of the good guys and will be greatly missed. PBA from IHM


Uncle Steve

We met many years ago when I married into the Maher Family and saw each other though out the 60 years I’ve been a Maher. Then about 4 years ago he moved to Burlington, I knew about the move and soon ran across him at mass one Sunday….I came up and said “Hey Uncle Steve good to see you, I heard you had moved to Burlington.” He was 90 and I said how did you get to mass…”Well I drove, how did you get here” and that began a very special relationship that developed into a close bond between him and my family. We were together at least weekly and more often at times. We began a card group with in-laws of our granddaughter…and another close bond developed. He was a special person who drew you to him and your life became so much more enriched because of him. To say he will be missed is an understatement…he took a part of us with him but rest assured he is taking good care of it where he is now.

We will miss you

Uncle Steve and Aunt Betty were my godparents. I spent parts of many summers with them and my cousins. Bill and I so enjoyed your knowledge and stories of Independence. We will miss you but smile whenever we think of you!
