  1. My best memories are also of playing baseball with Steve and Tim at Holy Angels as a kid. My brother John is also part of this candle because he loves Tim and Steve so dearly. I think the four of us, my brother Mike, and a handful of other neighborhood kids played pick up games in the summer for countless hours in the days before jobs and other responsibilities took over. What a magic time. Steve and Tim even gave John and me a grocery bag full of baseball cards one time because we were the only two just as crazy about everything baseball as they were. One time about six of us tried to sleep in a little shed we had semi-built at Steve and Tim’s house. Someone (Mike?) stepped on a nail the next morning and things get hazy after that. My condolences to all the Kuhn family and to Steve’s family in particular. Especially to Sharon and Laurie, the two sisters I knew the best. God’s speed to you all. And as Tim says…we will all meet again. Love, BILL
