Steve and I became friends in a support group struggling with various medical conditions and chronic pain. We met at a church for several years : sharing new information about our conditions, doctors or medications that had helped us. Steve was our much-respected and loved Prayer Leader. To me, it seemed family- like and the meetings helped me so much. We all seemed to believe that the Good LORD WAS OUR SOVEREIGN LEADER AND PROVIDER. The last time I saw Steve was in front of Lowes.
We reminisced about HOW WE MISSED THE SUPPORT GROUP;
and I took hope in his words that he had been thinking about starting it up again!!! My heart jumped for joy!!! STEVE WAS
ONE OF THE KINDEST AND MOST-BRILLIANT GODLY MEN I HAVE EVER MET IN MY 73 YEARS AND CERTAINLY IN NORTH KNOXVILLE!!!!!! I will pray for his family and PRAY TO SEE HIS FACE IN HEAVEN!!!!!!!!
