This photo was taken before Steve got sick, and it shows the Wild Things in their natural state. Steve is on the left (1965 - 2006) and Pat is on the right (born 1966). They were close enough to always understand what the other was thinking, but like most close siblings they fought as intensely as they loved.
Patrick's 43rd birthday was yesterday, and today is the third anniversary of Steve's death. Tonight Laura, Pat and I will meet with Kirk and Valari, Steve's children, for our Commemoration of their Dad, and the Celebration of Pat's birthday. Where else but at a burger joint?
