Mark, So sorry to learn of the passing of your father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
Danielle and Dick Boal
Though I only saw him
sporadically in my adult life, Uncle Steve was an iconic figure in my childhood. Whether at Lake Sebago to which our two
families made regular summer excursions, or Seaside Heights, where we spent two weeks together for several years running,
or at any of the many family gatherings which the family held back in the fifties and sixties, Uncle Steve was a commanding
figure, and a role model for all of us. Respect seemed to be his major issue, both for him as an authority figure, and for
others. Only through respecting others can one truly develop self respect, the bedrock of any personal success. With the
passing of my last uncle, an era is truly coming to an end. May God bless him and keep him, and may you be consoled in your
condolences to you at this difficult time in your family. May God comfort you and show you His love and peace. Thank-you
for giving me the opportunity to help your dad, grandfather and uncle. during these last several years.
