  4. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this time. I went to school with the older Deiter kids including Steve, Tim and Julie at Maple Hill Grade School. We lived just down the street from them, so we visited with the whole family for many years. I have several memories of those times. My sympathy goes out to all.
