Steve can't get out of the house -- or out of bed -- any longer, but plenty of friends are taking time to bring the outside world in. He loves visits, even though we have to keep them brief to conserve his energy.

Phone conversations aren't really an option -- he can't hear well and his voice isn't reliably strong enough for the phone.

If you'd like to visit with Steve in person, please send me an e-mail with a couple of potential days and times. He generally naps from about 1 to 4 p.m., so mornings or late afternoons are best. (And, of course, if you're ill or someone in your home is ill, we'll need to reschedule.)

If you can't make it to the house, please consider sending a card or note. Steve loves to read encouraging, comforting words and enjoys children's drawings.

You can send them to: 5704 Hidden Creek Lane, Frisco, Texas 75034.

Tyra, will definitely come visit and will actually have Juhee come up with a drawing just for Steve. She loves to draw and paint and we will work on a theme. Give my best to sweet Steve. I would do anything to make all of this go away. I was sick for a few days and kept pushing myself without complaining. Thought of Steve and all that he endures, no reason for any of us to complain. I have zero tolerance for anything after looking at Steve. Just can't stand people who complain about their life when all is relatively well. Steve has been an inspiration for so many of us, I just wish that it weren't this way. I have said this before but will say it again, I will always be there for you and the kids. Lots of love and hugs.

I wonder if Steve had any idea, 15 years ago, that he had chosen his guardian angel as his wife? My goodness, Tyra, you are the most wonderful caretaker for your husband. You show such honor and love to him during this very difficult time in his life. You are doing everything so very, very well. God bless you, God keep you, God strengthen and guide you. May you be wrapped in comfort that knows no end.

I've just read the first two comments and could not agree more with both of them. Steve's good humor and grace come through in everything he does. Tyra, you have been such an inspiration, as has Steve. "Guardian angel" is a term that fits you well. I've always thought that, contrary to the saying, adversity does not build character, it reveals it. Both of you are truly people of great substance. I pray for your family and wish you the best.
