You are the first of the cousins to part from this earth. I guess we never know how long our walk in this life will be but it sounds as though you packed as much into it as you could. You will be missed by those who you shared your time with. See ya later Steve.

Ken and Peggy, I'm sorry to hear of Steve's passing. I knew from talking with you and Steve this past summer and fall that things were not going the way one would have hoped. In the late seventies and early eighties many good times were had in the family basement playing table tennis. I also had the pleasure of skiing with Steve at Lake Tahoe and in Michigan's Upper Peninsula treasured memories I will keep forever.

Ken and Peggy, we were very saddened to learn of the most premature homegoing of your son Steve. We think that we understand the magnitude of your grief, but know that we cannot come anywhere near fully comprehending it. We are praying for both of you and your family at this time, and are thankful beyond words that Steve knew Christ as his Savior, and that you will both see him again in heaven. What a great promise from our Lord! May you both find rest and peace in Him during this most sorrowful time, and after you return home. Love in Christ, Jerry and Lynda Taylor

Dear Ken and Peggy, Craig, Kathy, Sydney and Max......... It has been my joy to be part of your "extended" family for over 30 years and surely Stevie will be missed... However... "regarding the question, friends, .... about what happens to those already dead and buried...(we) must not (grieve for) them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 (The Message) Goodbye for now, Steve. See you soon.
