There are too many special memories about Stephen to recount just one. He was a sweet, loveable, creative, crazy, adventurous and very special person. My Brother, my Sister and I have known Stephen and his family for many years. We have watched Stephen grow and improve in he rehabilitation from the Traumatic Brain Injury that he suffered at such a young age. I know of no more determined people...dedicated to each other and to his future. May you Rest In Peace Stephen. You are now with your Heavenly Father. We will miss you!

Stephen was such a cool kid. I'll never forget opening the door to see his dirty little smiling face looking up at me. And, when he was grown, he was so optimistic and Happy. Always an encouraging word. Happy to serve God and others. Good job, Mom and Dad. He will be missed. God bless you and the family and friends that surround you at this most difficult time. I love y'all and I'll never forget Stephen for as long as I live.
