Dear Jorgensen family. We are so sorry for the terribly tragic death of Steve. He lived in a house that my grandfather built and We live next door to him but only short periods of the year. Steve was a great neighbor, he took care of the house and yard and even shoveled our snow from time to time because we weren't there at the time. Trooper, his dog looked forward to the snacks that I would leave for him. We, too, will miss him. Our very deepest sympathies to all of your family.Roger and Judie Johnson
