  3. I like first to tell all of my uncle Stevens family how sorry I am. My uncle was the best person one may ever have the pleasure of meeting. I have so many good memories from my whole life with uncle Steven and his family and I'm so very blessed to have had them. My uncle Steven was a very kind, loving ,loyal to family, devoted to all family. There was never a time he wasn't there if you needed him. I feel very sad that we have lost him but I find peace in knowing and believing he's with the rest of his family now. I know he'd want us all to keep smiling and enjoying our family as he was always about family. I loved him so much and I don't believe anyone nice could ever ask for a better Uncle. Steven was just thee very best. Ii pray my family finds peace and comfort in their hearts and I want you all to know I love you very much. I wish I could be there with you all but know in my heart I am right there beside you. I love you all so very very much. God bless you all and keep you in his care always, Paulio

  4. Along with many other ways my Grandpa, Steven Morgan taught all of us kids with lectures and stories. But we always learned something from him. As I've grown older I realized how important and how impressionable these stories are on all of us kids. His stories always had a point and a lesson tied to them. And I will remember them forever..
