Noralyn, I am so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. We worked together for many years at Great Rock Tractor in Bourne, and in fact my husband and I attended your wedding 20 years ago. Steve was so happy when he found you and made you his wife. Stephen was a valued employee while I was there and we shared a strong work ethic. I wish I had known of his passing. We all mean to keep in touch but for some reason don't do it. Again I am very sorry for your loss and pray your wonderful memories and your faith will give you peace.
With fond memories, Susan Haynes

I hadn't seen Stephen in years, but that isn't enough to forget about when Matthew and I were jumping on his bed as children, and broke it! I remember it being so big and high up... we just had to jump on it!

I also remember thinking Stephen and Noralyn were so nice and so fun! Always playing with us and such loving and kind people.

Stephen, you will be missed, and thank you so much for the fond childhood memories!
