Thank you, Steve, for being the kind of man whom it is an honor to call family. Your love, integrity, and humor will be kept close as cherished memories by all who had the privilege of knowing you. Thank you for always loving the Lord, your family, and anyone who might need your kindness. You are and will always be dearly missed until we can meet again. So, in the meantime, I'll say, "See you later!"

I miss you so much, my beautiful, beloved husband. I don’t know how to live life without you. You have been my best friend since childhood. The best moments of life have been shared with you. I thank God for loaning you to me for all these years. I don’t pretend to understand why our life together was cut short. I know I have to trust God that He is good and has a plan for all our lives. I will walk forwards in faith and trust that God will carry our family. Thankyou for being such a loving, sweet husband. Our children have been so blessed to have you as their Dad. Their hearts are broken without you but they are honoring you by taking care of this grateful Mama. You have taught them so well. Thankyou for giving them to me. I lov e you so much and will for the rest of my days until we are together again in Heaven.

I had the privilege of being one of his secretaries when he was an Associate Warden at Herlong. He was super easy going and easy to work for. Mr. Morris and him would always be laughing. When he went to activate Mendota, he called me one day and told me he was trying to get his fax machine to work and asked if I could fax over something so he could test it. Well, I just happened to have a picture of him sleeping in the vanpool (courtesy of his vanpool) and I faxed that. Well, he had the last laugh, because he never called back to tell me if he got it. But I know he laughed! Mr. Lake was a very kind and fair man and he will always be remembered by his BOP family.
