So here is what we know about Steve today on his birthday. Mischievous. Bright. Talented actor. Horrible musician. Consummate artist and creative genius. Wouldn't Dad be proud of him for his wonderful artistry? Persevered and never gave up through the tough times. Never quit trying and never quit working. Married Mary Lynn, a genius, one of his most outstanding accomplishments. Laughter. Reminds me of Dad's laughter. Great sense of humor. Loves living in 30 ft of snow every winter. Like Grandpa Wasden, he can create something beautiful and something incredible out of what originally looked like nothing. Loyal sibling to the five of us and loyal dad to his kids. Loves his ugly dog. Remembers everything that he and Ann perpetrated. Stuffed junk through the hole in the wall from the doorknob in my previously private bedroom. Knew all the secret hiding places.
I have taken many thousands of pictures over the years but I have never taken any better photos than the two top photos of Steve. They stand out as gems. The third photo is from Steve's John Wayne and Clint Eastwood incarnation.
Happy Birthday, Steve, from Dwight, Louise, Elizabeth, Judy, and Ann
