What can I say about Uncle Steve? Smereka’s were our next door neighbors growing up through the years, more like relatives, and family….They had the best, greenest, most lush garden in town, Steve was a master meticulous craftsman, who could make something out of anything, a character and a card….and ooohhh….those Cinammon Buns Auntie Diane would make..mmmmm….brings me back to St.Paul in a flash…and Clancy, well, he’s finally got his best buddy by his side again….and im sure they’re catching up on the local town gossip this very second….we love you Uncle Steve and will miss you dearly…..Pepi and Simone…

Relation: nurse

what a dear sweet man, who was a joy to look after in the hospital.
