    I have known Steve since childhood when he brought his younger siblings to my Mother’s day care on Myrtle Ave. I last saw he and his Mother, by chance, at an Ikebana show when I was visiting friends in the area. He must have been the son every Mum would want. Sincere sympathies to all family members. Marsha and Dennis Curran.

    Steve was a credit to his community and family. His efforts to promote international relations brought many people of diverse backgrounds together. As my student at the old University of Omaha, Steve excelled in personal relations as well in as academics. He has left an indelible and artistic influence on our city.

    My sincere condolences to the Takechi family. I have to this day, a watercolor rose that Steve, drew with a lovely inscription some 30+ Years ago. Still framed and on my wall. May GOD give HIS strength upon you as you grieve. Blessings
