Dear Lisek Family,
When I first joined the extended Burke family no one made me feel more at home that Uncle Steve. I always looked forward to his sense of humor and friendly banter. Steve was all about family and he was inclusive to both young and old. I know that he left you all a fine legacy in the person that he was. God Speed to you Uncle Steve!

Aunt Bette,
It's been many years and many miles but Uncle Steve was a wonderful man who made a lasting impression on me as a child and he was always in my heart. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Dear Aunt Bette, Karen, Mike, Maribeth and Family,
Uncle Steve was a loving, caring man whose cup was always half full. His enless sense of humor brightened any room. When I was growing up, he was always my fan, my cheering section...wondering about how I was doing in school, teasing me about how many boyfriends I had. After I grew up he wanted to know how my career was going and later my own family. He always started out each conversation with me by calling me "Suzy". I am 48 and I still have no idea how he came up with this nickname for me, but I will always remember Uncle Steve as one of my very favorite Uncles. I know he pain free now and I look forward to seeing him again someday in heaven.
