I have known Steve my whole entire life. He is my godfather and one of the few male role-models in my life. My father left me at an age where I don’t really remember him. Steve, Luis, Papa Angel, Theo Junior, Mel and Big Jay were the only guys who actually took the time out to spend some time with me, or talk to me, or was willing to be there for me when I needed help, and I Thank All of you guys! Steve was one of the guys who stood out, Steve always considered me and my brother as two of his sons. Steve was the kind of person who would put 110% into everything that was a part of his life. He was an athlete, a hard worker, a business man, and most of all he was a family man. Steve had a serious discussion with me and my brother once, it is a covenant that I will keep in my heart until it is my time to go. I would like to thank the people at Streetplay.com for this honorable tribute and I pray for those who have been stricken with this tragedy. God bless! I miss you Steve!
