"Steve and I met in junior high and were friends ever since. He was a true friend. He always amazed me with his passion and conviction. He joined the army and became a medic to eventually go to medical school and become a doctor. He was a great man and the world has never been the same without him in it."

Hello,
I represent PRAYER SHAWLS 4 FALLEN SOLDIERS (PS4FS), an organization that since October 2007 has sent over 2,800 prayer shawls to military families who have lost a loved one. We are an organization of over 240 groups from all over the country. We make every effort to reach families even when post cards are returned after they have moved. Would you kindly send me a contact email/address so that we may send a loving hand-made prayer shawl to the family? Thank you!

"Steve and I went to Koln, Germany together on a whim right before Iraq in '03. He loved his family and I really hope his little one will know how much of a hero he really was. We were advanced party for his first tour. We took the trip from Kuwait to Iraq together. He was a great soldier but was WAY more than that. I was fortunate to call Mennemeyer my friend. For his family, just know your son will NEVER be forgotten."
