    Steve, I am so sorry to hear of your losing your mom. I fondly remember her making the most delicious coconut cake(from scratch) that you bought in on our EMS shift one Christmas years ago. She was a very special mother to her loving son. Praying for her, you & your family during such a sad loss. Much love to you.💜

    Mrs. Gooch, as she was known to me, was such a special woman. She treated me like her own and never failed to make me feel loved. Steve, my most sincere regards to you. Thank you both for playing such a huge roll in my life. Those moments will never be forgotten and will always be cherished!
