Nicholas and Chelsey:

Cory (Mom), Spence, and Steph,
Steve was such an amazing and humble person to have in our lives. We have a lot of cherished memories with him and we are so grateful to have known him.
Steve and Cory are such huge supporters of mine and Spencer's music endeavours. I remember one evening after writing, practicing, and performing one of our original songs, Steve opened the door to the music room and gave us a very tender round of applause. It was such a feel good moment that I think of regulary.
I'll always remember Steve as a gentle, humble, and hilarious man (He had the BEST dad jokes). I will always think of him when I hear the guitar in Soul Meets Body.
Chelsey and I wish we could be with you all today. We are sending you so much love and are thinking of you always.
