Message: Stephen, You would be so proud if you could see how well Gabrielle is bringing up your little pumpkin, Madeline. I almost had Maddy talked into going on a bungey jump ride at the amusement park. Well - we did get to ski down from the top of Mt.Snow...You should have seen her ...her braids flying in the wind- fearless ---like you. It's going to be four years since we lost you and not a day goes by that I don't think about you ----every time I hear U2--I get that much closer. You dance in head and in my heart. Love, Helly

Message: More then a coach Steve was a father figure to me and still to this day I hear his voice in certain situations that I come across in life. He was an angel on my shoulder during the bad and good times but more importantly he is still with me. There hasent been once day since 9/11/01 that I havent thought about him. And people say you will never remember your coaches when you were a kid, guess I proved a lot of people wrong. Greg all I gotta say is your just as strong as Steve was to be brave and talk about him to this day and show such strenght with out breaking down. There hasent been one day that I havent used one of his quotes or lines that he always told us in his practice and game day speaches. "live everyday like its your last because you never know when its going to be your last" the one quote my kids in the future will know and live by. the Lindner family misses you buddy!

Message: Stephen I saw your little girl at Danielle's sweet 16 last year. She is soo beautiful (looks just like you) and she was so well mannered and lovely. I could only think what a wonderful father you were to her and how much I wished for her you could be there to dance with her. I know you were there in spirit dancing right next to her. You will always be missed by many many people.
