Steve. He came from New York. He and his wife were high school sweethearts, they married before he enlisted in the U.S. Army. She moved to GA to be with him, but she readily admitted she didn't like it here. She didn't like being away from her roots, her family , the roads she knew etc etc. She couldn't wait until he got his orders so they could move again. But Steve? never complained, he enjoyed the warm sunshine and basked in it. He always had a warm word to share with not only her, who he reassured constantly but everyone around him. Namely Me.
It was that ............that drew me to adore my friendship with Steve , more so than his wife Peggy. I liked her .. But Steve and I connected.
My daughter now lives in a military town and she has met some wonderful friends there. The funny thing is...........one of them.................reminds me so much of Steve.......... Steve M. I may have even caught myself staring a couple of times, not AT HIM , but through him.
