  1. I’m so sorry to here about Steve. Now he is pain free and resting in the arms of his Father!
    Sherrie my prayers are with you and your family this day-

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember cutting Steve’s hair many years ago and he was always such a character! Always a story to tell me or a joke to share! 🙂 May the memories help you all get through this sad time. Hugs to all!!

  3. My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know Steven will be missed. Please know our heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelation 21:4) and another promise is that “there is going to be a resurrection.” (Acts 24:15) I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) bring you comfort.

  4. Thoughts and prayers to all of you at this difficult time in your lives. Memories of Steve will last a lifetime and remember he is pain free now and will be watching over all his loved ones. RIP Steve!!
