CandleJoEllen and family, I am so sorry for all of your loss. I knew Steve through my work at the Court House. Plus we stored records in his office. He was always a pleasant man. And always ready to show pictures of the grand children.

Dear JoEllen, I was saddened to hear of his passing. My prayer is that you and family know that you are loved.

Rev. Bobbie Chapman on May 19, 2017

JoEllen and family, I was sorry to hear of Steve' death. He was a wonderful gentleman, churchman, lawyer and Congregationalist. He was so proud of and loved all of you. We last talked a short time ago and while I knew he was struggling, his focus was on the future for his family and the Congregational Way. I will miss the conversations with my friend. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
