  6. Larry Neumann condolence:

    Steve and I were good friends in high school. We worked together in the Young Republicans and the Civil War Roundtable. We sang together and spent quality time doing nothing at all. It was Steve who helped Darlene and me get set up for grad school at the U of I. We were the janitors at the Lutheran Student Center because Steve got us in the door. His good humor and his faith will be truly missed. May God be with Chris and his entire family. Our love and prayers are with you!
