Dear sweet Peggy, Skip and I are so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. He will truly be missed. You all will be in our prayers. Heaven I'm sure is rejoicing as Steve was welcomed into the presence of the Lord. I'd like to think that my Mom was one of those heavenly saints welcoming Steve to his heavenly home.

Don Bridges left a message on October 5, 2021:
I played on the track, baseball, football and basketball teams at Paris High School with Steve. I remember the 440 relay team ( upper state and state meets). I was sick at home when the football team pictures were made but got a trophy for best back. Steve was always a close friend with so many fun memories in sports. Peggy Lindley and her family were next door neighbors on Wade Hampton Blvd. and we were active members at H.H. Baptist church for my early years in high school. I cherish their friendship. I will always have good memories of Steve and will miss seeing Steve at those high school reunions. I look forward to many more years of friendship with Peggy and her family. May God be with you in recovering from your loss. Your friend, Don Bridges
