    Vicki: My sincere sympathy. I have not seen either you or Steve since Jean and I visited you in Fort Bent Hill. I tried to contact Steve on one of my visits home and did not get any phone answer. Steve and I met together in Vietnam of all places. Two cousins don’t see each other and then end up together in NAM. I will always remember Steve as a fun loving, joker. We sure had a good time and that is how I will always remember him. I hope you and your family are doing OK under the circumstances and hope to hear from you. God Bless Steve in his travels in the next life. Ted & Jeannie Perry
