St eve grew up in my neighborhood and played with my sons, My
heart aches for each of you in his passing. I pray God will wrap each of you in His arms and give you comfort. M ay he and David Weaver,
Kevin and Steve Riddle meet again in Heaven. Wally will be there to take them fishing in GOD'S Fish Pond.
I remember Steve running to my house to show off his new Long Johns- "-Look Marie It has a crack in them'

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5

I think the joy is finding family and building relationships.

My sincere condolences to Christopher, Lindsey and Matthew and to the Chapman family.

Rest In Peace, Steve.

My best friend growing up as a kid in Richland Hills. Steve and I were next door neighbors. I had not talked with Steve in 35 years and we spoke in September. It was so good to catch-up and hear his voice. May God keep you in his care my friend

My oldest brother left this temporary home and life. I pray you have found peace. I will forever be your little sister. Glenn and I will hold close our talks with you and seeing you with your nephews, Colton and Jason. I will forever be thankful for the support from you and Pam when we were all losing our Father, Steve. Our Father was always sharing stories about his days as a police officer and your laugh was contagious when we talked about him. I will always hear your laugh. Johnny and I will share stories of you always and we will laugh. I know his children Johnny and Stephanie will do the same. Your Uncle Bobby and his wife Jackie will remember you along with all of your cousins. Your Mother, Peggy was heartbroken and my Mother, Sandy could only cry. I pray your children Christopher, Lindsey, and Matthew will find peace with your passing. I am including my favorite photo of you, me, and Johnny. I was a happy little sister with my big brothers. We were together and I pray we will be again one day.

What can I say but that I have a full heart of gratitude, today. Not in loss but in knowing. Knowing the man who I saw not the man who was before. Knowing that I was able to meet you , and furthermore knowing the moment I did how proud you were of the man I was. Just as you listened to my life story unconditionally I too today choose to love yours the same. The restless spirit that consumes us is now no more. I am Thankful of the short time we had to get to know each other however brief it was. Yours is a story of lives sometimes unconnected but I pray that through you lives will be joined again. I will always be your firstborn son and will always be grateful for the parts of me that make me you.

With Love
