  • My strongest memory of Steve is him teaching me a sunday school lesson. He opened the s riptures and explained them with such passion and clarity. It was like he had turned on the lights. I was hungry to learn more after his class. I am forever thankful for his lessons and friendship. I admire the Shaha family so much! Sending my prayers at this difficult time.
