I posted this on Facebook when I learned of Steve’s death. A friend thought I should post here for his family to see. The Post Office won’t be the same without him.
I debated about this post. I learned today that one of my favorites at the post office died in his sleep. I am there every day so they are all my friends. He was a Vietnam veteran. Our post office is plastered with pictures of a number of vets. It’s started for veterans day and they just stopped taking them down. His pic is right by his station. I can’t tell you how much I loved it when I got served by him. Phoenix (my grandson) loved him. He had been on leave to care for his sick wife so I hadn’t seen him in a while. I will miss him and always think of him when I go in. Rest peacefully my friend Steve. You left this little piece of overland Park so much better because of your service.
