Sorry, but I get a little weepy when I think that Steve isn't with us anymore.  Such a wonderful guy... My special memory of him was that he escorted me to prom our junior year. Handsome in his suit and tie -- really rather dashing -- he was an absolute gentleman who made me feel like a very fine lady. Oh, how I treasure that cherished memory now.   We all knew and adored Steve – he was everywhere and in everything. My God, how you are missed, sweet friend…

Oh, first "real" kiss.  It was Jenny Schamber's boy/girl party at that big, beautiful old house in Oaklandon. We snuck out and ran to the cemetery across the street.  Making out in a cemetery, how romantic!!  I'm so glad we stayed such great friends for those few years, even after the "romance" was over.  I have only good, happy memories of you and your wonderful family.  They always treated me like one of their own; such fun times at the lake cottage.  I'll never forget those days.....and now I get all weepy every time I see that picture of you.  I wish so bad you could be with us next year.

Ann, I have a picture of you and Steve, and Dave McMillon and I in my parent's TV room on prom night.  We had so much fun!  And you're right, if Steve was anything....he was a gentleman.

Steve and I double-dated to the Huddle (is that the right name?) on Keystone Avenue.  Never in my wildest dreams would I have considered double-dating with MY parents!  His folks were so young, hip, and attractive!  And, Steve was so very cute!  He must have kissed every girl in the class b/c I remember going to a drive-in with him.  We didn't see much of the movie.  Good times!  I didn't know he'd passed away until I read this.  Makes me very sad; what a loss.

Steve had your back.  As much as he seemed comfortable in his own skin, his engaging smile, charismatic personality and fun-loving attitude always made me feel like I was deeply involved in his friendship.  You could count on Steve whether it was on a football field, on a baseball diamond, or in your life.

I had to laugh when I read Sandy's post! Yes, my first "real" kiss was also with Steve Vermillion at a boy/girl party at Jenny Schamber's house near the cemetery! Boy, Steve must have gotten pretty excited every time he heard Jenny was having another party! (I'm assuming Sandy and I didn't get kissed at the same party!) The kiss made quite an impression on me because, hey, it was my first kiss but also because he hugged me afterwards. Sweet.

When I saw Steve at the 20th reunion I rushed over to him and enthused about my fond memory of the kiss/hug combo. His reaction was, "Are you sure that was me? I don't think we ever kissed." Oh well.

I remember running into Steve downtown Indianapolis in about 1978.  We sat in a restaurant, had coffee and talked for awhile. 

We sat next to each other in our sophomore year typing class; he always made me laugh.

Rest well, Steve.
