    Ruth and Allison:
    Steve was a peaceful giant. I assumed he spoke Spanish but I didn't know he spoke several languages. I wish I had known he was a pilot. I could have swapped stories with him about my dad.
    Steve's illness was a tradgey and I know, Ruth, that you are worn out. I send prayers for gentle healing to you, Allison and Allison's husband.

    To all the Morgan family. I am so sorry for your loss. Steve was 1 year behind me in school and I remember his athletic ability well in high school. He will be missed by many, especially his family. I wish I had known he was in Daytona Beach - that's where I live and I would have reconnected with him. His paternal Grandmother and my Father were brother and sister and lived a few houses apart on 4th ave.

    My sympathy to all of Steve's family. Steve was a good friend in high school and some of my best memories include the good times and laughs we shared. One of the highlights of our 40th reunion was reconnecting with Steve.
