    Dear Betty Ann, I was so saddened to read of Steve’s passing. Starting in the sixth grade he and I spent so much time together playing golf and baseball. We enjoyed each others company and had so much fun together. I’m not sure but I wouldn’t be surprised if you were the oply girl he ever dated. He knew a good thing when he saw it. My wife’s mother lives on the other side of Dover. Everytime i pass the Bakertheater I remenber you and Steve and Rosalie Carbonari and I sitting in the balcony with some locals sitting behind us flipping lit matches in our direction. At the end of my junior year at Blair academy Steve drove up to watch me play in the last game of the season.Near the end of the game in my last at bat I hit a clean single. I was so pleased to have Steve there I was looking at him while I was on first base. Since I wasn’t looking at the pitcher I was promptly picked off! I hope you and your family are well. My thoughts are with you. Martin Newmark
