Angler’s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish,
Until my dying day,
And when it comes
To my last cast,
I then most humbly pray,
When in the Lord’s
Safe landing Net,
I’m peacefully asleep,
That in His mercy I be judged,
Big enough to keep.

    My brother was the one who walked me down the aisle many years ago. Thanks for everything Steve. You are loved and you will be missed

  • Debra Lundstrom Hill says:

    We used to camp with Steve and the family in the Sierra Navadas. Steve was the flashlight man. Of you needed light, he was the go to. We will miss you Steve. Arnie, Deb, Heather and Lisa.

  • Sheryl Korner Rogers says:

    My brother Steven was always smiling, always joking around. I will miss his hugs and laughter so much.

  • Kimberlee says:

    Steve was the best big brother to me… I have so many wonderful memories of him, especially when I was young… he was so patient and kind-hearted. He would let me hang out in his room, watch him feed his pet iguanas, listen to all the good rock-n-roll, which I still love to this day… he was always laughing and smiling πŸ™‚ I got to relive all those great memories once he had his own kids πŸ™‚ Steve, you left us far too soon, and will be missed, but always dearly loved! Love, your baby sis β™‘

  • Bonnie (Korner) Powell says:

    I have many memories of my brother Steve, ranging from me “helping” him fold papers for his paper route when I was little, to advice on towing a trailer, to him helping unload my new kitchen cabinets just a few years ago. But all of the helping aside, I think that the thing I will miss the most is hearing him laughingly say “what was that sister?” if I was teasing him, and “love you sister” at the end of every conversation or time spent together. He will be much missed by many people. Love you brother…
