Didn't know about Steve's passing until today. He was always great to work with and I am sad to know I will not see his smile again. I will keep your family in my prayers, knowing you were blessed to have him in your lives

Steve & I were on a route one day & it seemed as if everyone was stopping & talking to either him or me. Steve asked me...'Deb- do you know everyone'? I said...'everyone that you don't'! Steve was the best boss that I ever had. God has already blessed him, so we are left here to carry on.

We have been following Steve's journey through the youtube videos you have posted and through mutual friends.
We haven't kept up with your family like we should have since our First Missionary Church small group met, although we see those from the group from time to time. That was a wonderful time when our kids were young and you were newly married!
Our hearts are with you during this time. So thrilled to know that Steve's begun his eternal life in heaven but know there are so many who are missing him here on earth. We were so happy to hear that God blessed Steve with the strength to attend Kendyl's wedding. The picture on Facebook was so precious and will bring you so many wonderful memories to cherish.

Kari:I am so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. I am so gald that the Old Fort Bible Study group was able to assemble his "Priceless Gift" before his passing! And God's hand was certainly in Steve's and your life to allow him to see Kendyl's wedding! May you and your family receive special grace from God as you mourn his death. May he also bless Steve with his ETERNAL reward! I am in Portland, OR and will miss his funeral but my heart will be with all of you! May God bless you all at this challenging time!
