Jennifer and family,
We were so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. I know the influence you had on him was great and brought the rest of your family tremendous joy. God continued to bless you both. As you and I talked recently, “Only God can know whether he accepted Him while he was sick, we pray and believe he did. It’s called Faith.
You’re all our prayers.

You were here with us a short time but what an impact you made on us. I love you, always and the boys love you so much. If only I had more time. Thank you for being the best Uncle. Love you too infinity and beyond. Now rest easy no more struggling. Give pawpaw a kiss from us and tell him about the boys. Love you.
