To my family, I'm deeply saddened by the death of my little cousin, Stevie. I've been gone so long that I didn't even know that he had come to be known as; Steady!
My heart goes out to my Aunt Myrtle! Burying one's child is never easy, and now you have two gone on before you. I love you, and pray for you during this time of grief.
Shiela, Thomas and Richard, I love you. Being away from the family has not given me the opportunity to say that to you all. But though time and distance separate us, nothing separates my love for you and all of the rest of our family.
In closing, family and friends, let us reflect upon how our own lives effect and affect the lives of those we come in contact with. I can see by the reading of this guest book, that Stevie's (Steady's) life effected and affected a great many people who came to love him, and those of us have known and loved him since his birth!
I love my little cousin, and am sorrowful because of his death!
