Please allow me to extend my deepest sympathy during this difficult time to your family. I know the pain of losing a someone close. May your hearts find peace and comfort through the scriptures. They really help me and I wanted to share some with your family. Like, in knowing that Jehovah God loves us, he is near to those that are broken at heart and those that are crushed in spirit he saves – Psalms 34:18; Psalms 83:18. One day soon, “no resident will say: I am sick” – Isaiah 33:24. John 5:28,29 gives hope of a future resurrection and Revelation 21:3,4 speaks of a time when death, mourning, or pain will be no more. Jesus at John 11:11 said to his disciples, “Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.” We can have faith in these promises. I had personally wondered why God has temporarily allowed the suffering and death that surrounds us. I found the answer in the bible. It can bring much comfort. Keeping you in my prayers. Shellye
To the family : my sincere condolences.
There is no greater pain than the death of a loved one.
Sometimes it seems almost more than a person can bear.
Jehovah God helps us with this in His word,
He promises us that He will put a stop to all sickness
and death will be no more (REV 21;3.4) Jehovah also
shows His love for us through the ransom sacrifice
of His beloved son Jesus Christ. What a wonderful gift to be given !
Then the hope of seeing our loved ones again
on this earth, transformed into a paradise. The Bible tells us
this was Jehovah’s will when He created Adam & Eve.
(Genesis 1:26,27; John 5: 28,29; Psalms 37:11,22,29).

My sympathy to Steve’s
family and may God comfort
you. My son David sang
with Steve. We have many
Steve and I started singing together in the chorus and then the quartet from the late 1980’s to the mid 1990’s. I sang bari and Steve started out as bass, then tenor. We had so much fun together and we spent weekends, holidays and vacations together. I loved him and his family and have some of the most funniest stories to tell….but if you knew Steve, you know I can’t tell them here. 🙂 Steve was like a brother to me and over the years we lost touch, but I will never forget how he welcomed me into his family and treated me like one of them….and again….if you really knew Steve, then you would know how I kept insisting that he treat me like COMPANY, not family. 🙂 Lloyd,Leanna, and Mark, my deepest sympathies. God bless you all and Steve, may you rest in peace, my friend.
Only heard about Steve’s death today.
My condolences to all the family. Sorry I cannot be at the graveside service. I will pray for you who are troubled and are grieving. Love, Wesley Adams
You will be missed by Ruth & I
