Devastating News

38


It is with overwhelming sadness that I am updating tonight. Steven passed away earlier today (Sunday), and we are devastated. Our Steven is gone. He was a smart, funny, kind, and superb person- and I know that the world will never, ever be the same without him in it.

Thank you for your prayers. If you could keep my Aunt Jeanette, Uncle Ed, and my cousin Brian (Steven's brother) in your prayers, I would really appreciate it.

I am not often at a loss for words, but tonight I am. We love you, Steven...and the world won't ever seem right without you in it.
