Susan, sending condolences to your whole family. Although I only had the privilege of caring for Stephen for a brief time as his Hospice Nurse, he was clearly such a kind-hearted, strong, positive and well-loved person , who always seemed to have a smile on his face even in those last days. Keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers- Love, Deborah Walsh (and Laura's former classmate, Keith Walsh)

I was very upset to hear the passing of Mr. P. I was fortunate to be part of his first softball team in Bayside HS back in 1992. He always pushed us to do our best. Rest in peace....

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Steve. As former Baseball Coach at MacArthur HS, I was privileged to have him as my senior shortstop when I took over the program in 1979. He was well respected as a fierce competitor, a leader and mentor to the younger players. Having Steve at short was like having a coach on the field.Off the field, he was a kind, caring and well liked young man with a great sense of humor. I recall many of our conversations. He was intelligent, insightful, upbeat and always looked for a positive outcomes.I remember meeting him several years after graduation, as I heard "coach" from a distance. As I turned, I was greeted with that infectious smile that he always wore. We caught up on the missing years and he was beaming with pride as he spoke of his wife Susan and daughter Katherine. We spoke about his position at Bayside HS and his involvement in coaching. Life was good!I was sorry to read about the battle he waged over the past few years. From what I hear he approach it with the same positive attitude and determination that I remember from his high school days.My thought and prayer are with Susan, Katherine and all of Stephens family at this difficult time. I regret that I will not be able to pay my respects in person as I am out of town. Keep all that he lived and taught you in your heart and he will be with you forever.

Stephen & Susan were/are more than clients, they are friends. From the days when Steve packed up his mobile PT equipment and went to client's houses to his days as an educator and coach, Steve always had that great smile and positive attitude. It was this always positive attitude that carried both he and Sue through the tough times. A great guy who is now at peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
