Although I never met Stephen, I felt like I knew him through the conversations that we would have.

No doubt he was a loving and kind soul.

I know that you will miss him immensely and I pray that God will comfort you and I know that now you will not yourself be in pain worried about Stephen.

May the love of your family and friends comfort you during these times.

Sincerest regards,

To the family of Stephen Thomas Dominguez, kindly accept sincere condolences on his death. Be comforted by the words spoken by a prophet years ago - it states "death will be swallowed up forever".
That being said, it alerts us to the fact that at some time in the near future, mankind will not have to deal with the sad reality of losing our dear loved ones.

So whilst we await that time, kindly reflect on the wonderful times shared with Stephen, the kind things he would have done for you and others and use those memories to lift you up.

Once again, sincere condolences.
