I've known Stephen since he was a very young man. I was friends with his late sister, Lei. She loved her little brother so much. I can't believe he has left us. Taken away too young and too soon. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

I had the pleasure of helping get Kyle out of the car at Redwater Elementary and was able to meet both Brandy and Stephen on occasion. He was always so kind, quiet, and simple spoken. I noticed how much Kyle looked like a good mix of his momma and daddy and soft spoken, just like both of them. That’s my memory and I find it a peaceful one.

I never did get to meet Stephen in person although I did talk to him on the phone. And from what I learned he really was a good man and wish I could have gotten to meet him. I do know that he meant a lot to his older brother Scott and that he's going to be greatly missed by all those that have met him and loved him
