Default In Memory of Steven Vlahon (SarasotaRed)

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that Steven passed away this afternoon.

I can't tell you what I feel, but that It is unimaginable that I will never be able to talk to Steven or share any time in our unending friendship. At this time I am in denial with the reality that I will not be able to see my dear friend ever again.

I myself thought of him as pillar of strength, a man with a positive attitude even when the news was not so great. I know he was a man of deep religous conviction and it was his faith that made him a person I would striive to emulate. He truly was a righteous man!

I remember Steven contacting me on this site and inviting me to a little get together he was having. I'm not really one that actually gets into the club thing and his get together was the same day as my birthday. As Carol and I drove up to Sarasota we debated whether we should stop or not, oh what the heck! We made the turn instead of going to the restaurant. That night was the nigth that sealed a number of friendships that is stronger than ever to this day,

Guy (LondonRam) I think put it most eloquently, "what started as a sports car club transcended into a long lasting friendship" Vivian, Steven's wife would go further to say that we are family and I for one am honored to be considered as such.

I am posting some pictures of Steven, I've seemed to have misplaced some of my pictures, but here are a few and if other members have pics of Steven at different events, please post them.

With regard to Funeral arrangements, I will post as soon as I hear more

Steven is on the left, I'm sorry that it's not that clear, but I will post more

I just emailed him on Friday to see if I could come visit. I hope he at least got my email and was able to read it.

I never met anyone that smiled as much as Steven. Always cheerful and never had a bad thing to say about anything. Always positive in his situation, just a great person.

Man, this is sad news. Please keep us informed of the funeral date/time.

May you Rest in Peace Steven. We will really miss you.

You fought the cancer bravely for 3 years and you were always full of life and optimism even when you had to endure such excruciating pain. Cheryl and I will remember you for your words. You always had a great way to express yourself and you wrote so eloquently. What a gift!

We too remember being invited to your home in Sarasota via the internet and we also were skeptical. So here we find ourselves, 3 years later, having bonded beyond a car with people that have become more than friends.

Yesterday, was a very tough day for sure. I trust in the next few days and months we will remember the good and sweet times.

Sweet dreams for now.

Cheryl and Guy
