Stevey was the first teen who walked into the teen center on my first day as program Director. He offered to help me carry some tables outside for the evenings events. He helped me with those tables, and he frequented the center almost every weekend during my time at the center. I cried when I heard the news, and I spent some time in reflection of the conversations and laughs we shared. I will remember his great smile, good sense of humor, and all the good times we shared. I will miss you! and will remember our times together. Love and prayers to all who loved you, and may God keep you comforted while you wait on all your friends. John.

Remember when Norm walked into Cheers??? Well that's what it was like when Stevey walked into the Teen Center! Everyone yelled his name and he'd come in with a smile that just lit up the room. Kids would just migrated over to be around him! He will be missed by all ... RIP Stevey Mendoza! :.o( . .
