Words can never ever express the right thing to say when a loved one passes. However, my mother that passed years ago told me this: We are all placed on this earth by God to do a job and if you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll get off work early. You’ll see Steve again. We all will. Love ❤️ you. XoXo

We are so sad to hear about Steve, there is a cloud over our hearts. We were so fortunate to not only find the boat meant for us but to also find some fabulous new friends that day we called the number on the flyer for Belles & Whistles. We will not be able to make it to Dallas for the celebration, but we will be raising a toast to Steve of rum and Dr. Pepper here in Florida. Our hearts go out to Donna and all of Steve’s family, both on and off the lake, he left us all with many wonderful memories.
