I was saddened to hear the news of Steven's passing. Steven and I were best friends and next-door neighbors for several years during our grade school careers. Sadly, our friendship faded as I guess some do, but I will always remember Steven and the Norris family as my first favorite family away from home. They all share in a piece of my foundation as a person and I am forever grateful. As young teammates, we were a force. As competitors, we wanted to beat each other badly, but always found a moment to hug afterwards and sincerely ask about each others family and well-being. I remember as kids, watching our dads throw horseshoes on a summer night like it was yesterday. The laughter, shouting and the ring of a shoe hitting the pole. Steven and I used to laugh at them all because it used to get so dark, that they would measure points using lighters while Steven and I held flashlights. I hope his light shines on. Rest in peace.

I didn’t get to know my cousin, Steven, even though we were the same age. We lived many miles apart.
My heart breaks for his family just the same. Praying for God’s peace for you all.

My favorite memory of my cousin Steven is when my daughter and I came to visit the year my husband left us. Steven and Uncle Bob were so kind to Jenna, showing her the horses and letting her ride. They showed her that there are good, loving men in this world and she needed to see that, at that time. They time they spent nurturing her and investing in her during this very difficult time. This gift of time and love was priceless and I will never forget it. The loss is great on earth but heaven rejoices with a son returned home. My prayers and love to all my family who are mourning this precious man.
