Where do I start? I remember being a kid, Steven and my parrain playing music together. Him, my dad and parrain Building streets cars together. Jumping out letting air out the air shocks and laying rubber down in front of Earl Schexnayders house. Best memory of all when he added nitrous and raced Jimmy Richard. Built my own race car and a Steven always made sure he was there at every race. I love hearing stories about him, my daddy and parrain, only stories my daddy can tell from back in the day. REST IN PEACE, youll always be in my heart
