Dear Nancy and family,
Please accept our condolences. Although Steven wasn't very old, he touched many people's lives. He had a great sense of humor and was an asset to be working in the hospital. When I was a patient, he transported me and when Steve was a patient he transported him as well.
Please know that our prayers are with you and God has added to His Corp of Angels.
Love and God Bless,
Sue and Steve Hull

Very sorry for your loss. Steve’s kindness was obvious even throughout high school. I’d see him at the hospital, he always had a smile and took the time to chat. Gone entirely too soon.
