Stephen and I went way back to karate lessons in middle school, and have always had a deep respect for each other, even though we hung out with different groups of people. he was so thankful every time i gave him a ride home from anywhere, and he loved his son so much. We hung out the night before he became missing, May 14th, and he told me about how big Ayden was getting and how he's not a baby anymore when i asked how his little baby boy was. We even talked about death, ironically that night too. That is one man that should still be here, and never deserved to have the search for him stopped.
