We lost a fun loving cousin and friend way too early.  We will remember Steve for his wit, humor, and kind words.  It was always a good time when we were kids getting together with the cousins and Steve would be the life of the party! Our condolences go out to Uncle John & Aunt Gail, Michael & Laurie, Melanie, Patti & Jason, extended family and friends.  Stephen is in a better place now and we'll remember him forever.

You were loved, and we will miss you. I know that Jesus came for you at just the right moment, because His timing is perfect. And now, you and Tom are once more pedaling an amazing tricycle across heaven! Be at peace, my funny brother!
