    He was my playmate, my cohort in trouble at Grandma Rippee’s and always fun to be with. Steven, Gary and I were the same age, cousins that loved one another regardless of where we lived, or how we lived. Rest in Peace Steven and I know that you know that I loved you cousin.

    So sorry to hear about Steven’s passing. Unable to attend the Saturday service. Just got Hank home from Shawnee Mission Medical Center. God promises to bless those that mourn so I know you will feel His presence. The family will be in my prayers.
