Although Nick is no longer with us, a beautiful oak tree will be planted in the new little park on the corner of Briggs and Foothill that will continue to grow and be a part of this community for many, many years to come.
We know that there were many people who were involved in the planning, setting up and taking down of this event, and we would like to thank each and every one of them.
The community continues to define itself as caring and compassionate and the Steinbacher family thanks you all.
