My nephew Steve and his wonderful wife Meggan are up in the Vancouver area and it’s great to see them.
As you might remember, they stayed with us during the time around the funeral and Steve did an amazing job on working with me to get that eulogy video complete for Chris’ funeral.
When they left for home it was a hard good-bye.
We saw them down in San Diego and it’s been too long since then, but it’s great to connect.
Chris loved Steve as did/does Max.
When the boys were younger, Steve was the cool 20 something Dude who could do no wrong.
When he had a shaved head for a while (yah, and not the kind that I have where I make mine ‘fashionable’ because of being follicly challenged…), the boys called him Hair Bald Steve.
It was a great name and it stuck.
It was great to see Hair Bald Steve in action and it just continues to prove the strength and bond of family regardless of the usual miles in between.
We have some physical separation with Chris these days too, but we know he’s with us always, in our thoughts, in his spirit and sometimes in our trucker hats and running shoes.
