We wrote your name in the grains of sand
But the tide rolled in and washed it away
We carved your name in the trunk of a tree
But eventually the bark dried up and fell away
We treasured your name in the depths of our hearts
And even time itself could not steal your memory away
To the family I offer my condolences,, sorry to hear of your loss,, I went to school with Steve in Sydney , he was a quiet man but friendly and always helpful ,, he introduced me to kickboxing way back before anyone in Sydney had seen it in action this was in the early sixties,, I also seen Steve take out a trouble maker with one roundhouse kick , he was not to be messed with,,he told me he was trained in Toronto by Sweet Daddy SIKi,, Rest in Peace my Friend regards Don
