For the past 4 weeks I haven't "felt" Steve with me. The days have been very dark. At one point I even believed that maybe reincarnation is a real thing and he chose it. He was always very adventurous and loved life, so if it is a real thing, he would jump at the chance... Continue Reading →
And He’d Kiss Me
The is not the story of our first kiss. I’m not ready to tell that one yet. Instead, this is about every single day of my life with Steve. He never liked PDA’s (Public Displays of Affection). He was a very private person with everything, except his humor. He shared his humor with the world!... Continue Reading →
Take a Chance…Ticket.
Between the time we started working together, March 13, and when we officially became a couple, May 27, 1989, there was a lot of friendship building. We not only worked closely together and shared rides home, but we also spent a lot of our free time together. We had differing break schedules, but we got... Continue Reading →
The Day He Died.
No, this is not a description of his death, nor is it a description of our reactions. This is instead the true story of what he did, and what we did his last morning with us. Although it was a Friday, there were some things that were out of the ordinary for us. Steve was... Continue Reading →
Now, It was Her Heart a-Thumping!
Things have been too difficult lately for me to share stories. So I thought I'd share one of the letters Steve wrote to me over that first summer we were together. This letter was written on 7/17/89. Dear Nancy! Once upon a time, in a land not that far away, lived a frog, who dreamed... Continue Reading →
You’ll Stay In the Barn with Steve.
This story comes from March 9, 1989. Four days after meeting Steve. As you remember, Steve was working as a Counselor/Coordinator at Calvin Crest and I had gone up with my cousin to serve as a Cabin Leader. We had met, and looked for a bed, but then we went our separate ways. He had... Continue Reading →
Just Give Me A Sign
I’ve always believed that the Holy Spirit uses people to speak Gods messages to us. There have been several times in my past when someone has been talking to me and without knowing, answered a deep, secret-question in my soul. I’ve always believed it, and I shared that belief with Steve. After a few times... Continue Reading →
Steve, Stosh, Steven
This is not a story really, more of an explanation. Although I should probably include a story at the end, just for those that already know this information. So, keep reading! Some of you have wondered about Steve sometimes being called Stosh. His given name is Steven John Marsh. I’m not sure where the Steven... Continue Reading →
No. Don’t try to look that up. You won’t find that acronym on any webpage; except maybe this one. This story comes from me and Steve and has been going on for a while. I can’t tell you the date it started; it has just always been. But I do hope that you take on... Continue Reading →
You are my gift.
This story is from several years back; probably between 2009 and 2011. I don’t remember the exact date. But I will never forget his words. I was never fat when I was younger. You can see from the photos of me when Steve and I met, that I was boarding on tiny. I do however... Continue Reading →
