Sharon, I am so sorry for your loss. I might not be able to make the viewing or services but I just want you to know how sorry I am for you and your family.
My condolences to all of you. Treasure the memories. Kelly, if you (or family) need anything, please let me know.
Sharon, Kelly and Joyce (and to the whole family): I am so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. Please know you are all in our prayers in the coming days and weeks ahead. I can still hear Steve’s laugh and remember how orney he could be with all of us little kids (who now have our own little ones!). May God give you peace and comfort at this difficult time.
