I new they were suposed to be togeather before they did. I asked my mom if they were dating before she new she liked him, but I'm no psychic. It was easy to see that he brought a smile to her face I had never seen before. My mom changed after she met him in so many amazing ways. He helped her find the person she was suposed to be. He had that effect on people. His smile was infectious! To my children, he was grampa Stephen. Logan still talkes about the train musiam they took him to last summer. He was an amazing man. Always willing to help anyone in need and always encouraging them down the right path with his never ending wisdom. He was truly a unique person and touched so many people. It is truly a tragedy that he is gone. He will always be remembered and loved. Forever in are hearts, rest in peace Stephen Smithberger

I am so grateful that Stephen came into my niece, Carol's life. He made her smile and laugh like I hadn't seen before. They were good for each other. They complimented each other. They shared each other's lives and was planning a long future together. His life being cut short so early will surely make an impact on Carol's life and those that loved him. Carol, take comfort in remembering all the good times the two of you had together. Hugs to you Carol Lynn. May Stephen rest in peace.

Stephen was my life.
He made me into the person I was meant to become.
He showed me serenity, courage, and wisdom, tools that I use every minute to breathe without him next to me.
He deserves to be honored for the thoughtful man he was, and the many friends that loved him.
Forever isn't enough time to tell you how much I loved you, Stephen.
