I remember a sweet, active little boy who used to come to my house while mom and dad went to work. Stevie was a joy to be around and we are so saddened by his passing. Our heartfelt condolences to his loved ones, especially Deb and Rick. We will keep you in our prayers.

Stephen I don't even know where to begin here as tears roll down my face and a brick weighs heavy on my chest...a forever hole in my heart. So many emotions running through me that I cannot even process still. Christmas time will never be the same for our baby girl anymore and for everyone that loved you. Thank you for coming into my life 10 years ago and showing me the kind of love I've never felt before. We had our ups and downs like anyone else but God put you in my life for a reason and her name is Addisyn Rose Chandler. She will forever know how much you loved her and all of the wonderful things about her daddy I promise you that and I'll forever give her all of the love her beautiful soul deserves from the both of us. Just help watch over her and guide me along the way because I need you more than ever right now! We will one day get #justiceforaddysdaddy...love you and rest easy up there love!
