We wish Doreen, Denise and family our deepest sympathies. Our hearts are with you during this most difficult time. Stephen was part of our lives as children and teenagers, either spending memorable times with our family or playing hockey together. His smile could definitely brighten up a room and is surely brightening up our hearts today.

Condolence from Todd Haynes sent on January 11, 2019

I am very sorry to hear Stephen passing away. Please accept my deepest condolences. I’m also sorry I won’t be able to attend the celebration of life. I worked with Stephen many years ago at a bar. The crew we worked with was the best. Stephen made it a fun place to work. One year I went back to the gym and over worked my arms the first day back. Later that night my arm began to spasm. At the end of the night Stephen took a beer bottle and rolled out the spasm. It hurt like hell and I told him so and a few other words but we both could not stop laughing. Stephen wouldn’t want any tears shed for him raise a glass and smile and think of the joyful memories he created in your life. I will remember his dash…see the poem below

by Linda Ellis
I read of a man who stood to speak at a funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning… to the end.
He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time they spent alive on earth and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own, the cars… the house… the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard; are there things you’d like to change? For you never know how much time is left that still can be rearranged.
To be less quick to anger and show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile… remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.
So when your eulogy is being read, with your life’s actions to rehash, would you be proud of the things they say about how you lived your dash?

Condolence from BL Qualls sent on January 9, 2019

To the family and friends,
      I am very sorry to here of the loss of your loved one.
       Where can we receive comfort when we grieve? 2Corinthians 1:3,4 in the Bible says:   ” Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,  who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.”   God comforts us by letting us know what happens to our loved ones when they die and gives us hope that hey will be brought back to life.  To see proof of this from your Bible ask any one of Jehovah’s Witnesses to show you.
        Also you can see a short vedio “Is There Hope for the Dead?”
