According to witnesses, Steve and Racheyl did not plan on having children right away. They built a nice home for themselves. They spent their time outdoors: skiing, fishing, crabbing, shrimping, hunting, and camping. After a period of time, Racheyl reported to family and close friends that Steve stopped helping around the house. He wouldn’t do the yard work. He wouldn’t work on the cars without Racheyl pushing him to do it. She was a good mechanic, so she maintained her own car.
