Steve is now with his loving wife Helen whom I adored. I was their babysitter on Borden Ave. and spent many over nights in their home across the street from mine. I loved the Sveda family like they were my own and when I immigrated to the US Helen wrote many of her Hungarian recipes for me which I have to this day. Sandy called me Nina because she couldn’t say Jana and Margie and I would play together for hours. Whenever we had a baseball game on Borden, Steve was right there to play with us. I will always remember those days and how much I loved the Sveda family. R.I.P. Steve
