This was my sweet, wonderful brother. Why can't people look twice and save a life? Steve did nothing wrong. At least he's with God now...
that's "as you mourn"
Thank you so much for your beautiful thoughts. I'm back in Georgia now and it's very difficult to get through the day, much less the night. I feel lost at times and don't know what to do. With God's help, I'll make it through.
Thanks from his wonderful sister. I sure do wish I knew who this was so I could get an extra hug...
Thanks so much , Colin. I'll make sure Mom and Dad know.
Amen. Thanks so much!
Thanks so much, Trish, Wes, Brad and Kelley. Thanks also for being a wonderful support for Nicole. She was such a strength for me down in Titusville. Welcome to our family and we need to get together soon.
Thank you for your prayers. Your son is wise beyond his years. Steve will be greatly missed.
Thank you, Doug. I'm finding out that he has touched so many, many lives.
Thanks for your kind thoughts. He will be missed by many.
