Steve was a unique and unforgettable man in every sense of the word and the beautiful tributes of admiration that everyone has left in his honour are heart-warming
.As Steve’s wife and Soulmate, I would describe him as….. loving, devoted, honest, happy, funny, respectful, calm, quiet, generous, attentive, responsible, protective, hardworking, achieving, nonjudgmental, charming, astoundingly gifted, artistic, creative, courteous, captivating, polite and wise.
Steve never acknowledged his outstanding musical talent nor did he crave recognition and he dealt with the devastating illness that randomly struck him down with fearless determination and immense bravery….never once complaining of the cruel hand he’d been dealt. There was never any talk of us being parted, he was forever positive and because he was as strong as an ox and as fit as a 20 year old, he was able to deal with the gruelling treatment that those struck down with a brain tumour have to endure in an attempt to prolong life.
Steve has and will always be my hero and what lies in the days ahead for me I do not know, but what I do know is that the unique bond that Steve and I shared can never be broken.
I’m so very proud of my man!
I would like to thank the following very special people who have been there for Steve and I, through the good and the very bad times and who have supported me through the horrendeous and life-changing event of losing him. Without these people, I don’t think I would be here myself….guys….I love you all:Ian Richardson (my Rock and an absolute star), Roy and Jaci Davis, Lee Small, Joe Basketts, Phil Docker, Claire Edwards, Andrew Warwick, Vicki and David Tait, Jane Dickinson, Steven Craven, Rita Eaton, Antony Blacker.
