Dear T. and family,

I am so sorry for your loss of Steve.  If the kindness and personality of Theresa is any indication of how He was then this world will never be the same.  My heart goes out to you and your family.  May the words and presence of friends and loved ones comfort you in this time of sadness.  God Bless You and watch over your family.



You left us way to early.  I had planned to spend more time with you when things slowed down. 

You never knew it, but, I looked up to you when I first started to work with you some 38 years ago.  You became a friend maybe more like a big brother to me.  I thought you were cool, you had a MGB sports car, rode motor cycles and seemed to have everything a person could want or need.  You had a good job, nice home, great kids /family and a beatiful wife.  These were things I inspired to have one day.  Now I do.  You taught me by example that life can be good.  You taught me a lot... some good and some bad.  Your influence on me still effects my actions today, some good and some bad. lol

I will miss you and our days of driving the cities streets discussing every subject possible, almost 30 years of discussions.  My favorite memories were the stories you told me about some far away place or a time period long ago that you just read about in the National Geographic Magazine.   The Lord took you to soon little buddy. I hope and pray that you will find eternal peace.   

Dear Mrs. Whitehouse and Family, We are so very sorry for the loss of your husband. You are in our thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy.

So sorry for your loss my prayers are with you all.

Dear Theresa and family,  

  My sincere condolences. My heart is heavy with sadness for you and your family.   I pray that our Lord will guide each of you through this very difficult time. May happy memories help ease your pain. Know that Steve is with your little angel, Finley, and is watching over all of you.

May the sadness lift and you realize that you are blessed to have had all these years together. May you learn to live your life to the fullest in Steve's honor. 




Sorry for your loss.  Prayers for the family.
