With the heaviest of hearts i must write and tell you that my dear mate and your mate Steve Waller has died.
Known Steve for over 40 years,met Steve,like most of my mates watching Southend Utd play.
We were at Colchester,going to Layer Rd,we were walking through an underpass(above was a main rd),when Steve started to be rather ****y to the police,they warned him,he carried on,so they grabbed hold of him.
I also grabbed hold of him,saying to the policeman"sorry he is rather drunk,he is my brother i will look after him",
They said ok,but look after him....
Steve as you know had blond/white hair...mine was long brown hair!!!,think they were pleased just to see the back of him.
So started a "friendship"that lasted till this day.

Im sure a lot of the "older lads"could write about Steve,here on the Sh.zone and some storys ,like i have,we could not!!!!!
When i come back home for a visit,Southend will never be the same.A BIG part of "my Southend puzzle"has gone forever.
Will miss you and love you forever mate,crying again.
