It is amazing to me that Steve did not win over death. He seemed to get his way a lot. I think he thought he would be saved. And while he was saved spiritually which is big, cancer won over life.
What further amazes me is that he did not come back. I know it sounds crazy. But, to the handful of us who knew him well, it's hard to believe. I guess I thought he would get up there and explain he made a promise and was going to have to go back. He always pulled through for me, Now, over 2 years later, I need to give up. I guess everyone has limits.
