I knew Steven when he was a student at Valley Regional High School. I was one of his teachers and I was also his class advisor. I remember him as soft-spoken, thoughtful in words and actions, just a really nice kid. I am saddened by his untimely death. My deepest condolences to the entire Grich family. May you find comfort in each other and peace in the difficult days to come.
O for a day to walk again slow through a forest deep O for the time to talk again before I go to sleep O for the warmth of summer sun the chill of winters eve and O for the chance to sing my song once more before I go O for the scent of autumn air brisk clean and cold O for the chance to travel where the seas are blue and bold O for the prayer I never prayed O for the kiss I never kissed and O for the chance to sing my song once more while yet I missed cry of bird and wail of wind word unspoken sin un-sinned a night to dance a hill to climb the chance to sing while there is time O for the taste of meat and ale to linger on my tongue O for the sight of hill and dale and faces that are young O for the hand of one I love the time to bloom and grow and O for the chance to sing my song once more before I go.
May the peace of God comfort all of you now & forever.
We have two children at CU. We cannot imagine your sorrow. This tragedy could have happened to anyone of the many students in school. My heart aches for you and the loss of Steven, a gifted young man. You are in the prayers of many, many people. May God lift you up and bring you Peace.

Steven,Lynn and Family,
Many many years ago I was welcomed into the Grich family and I'm forever grateful. I was able to see and experience the love and caring you had for eachother.
The support system within the family is incredible and that is going to help you all get through the pain of losing Steven.
He will be missed by so many but he left such wonderful memories and such great hugs for us to feel for a long long time.
Love you All and God Bless
This poem brought me comfort when I lost someone that I loved dearly. May God wrap his arms around your family and provide you with comfort at this time. Steven has eternal life with Jesus and you will see him again one day...I will keep your family in my prayers
Do not stand at my grave and weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
Mary Elizabeth Frye
Thoughts and prayers are with the family ....may god bless you during this trying time
So young and full of promise. My thoughts and prayers to out to the family of this fine young man. It hurts now and will for a long time to come, but remember the good times...I'm sure there were many.
Steven was at my house often. He was such a bright lovely, polite young man. Both my sons and my daughter are devastated by this terrible tragedy. Know that he was very much loved by all who knew him. A group of them are driving down to S.C.tonight to pay their respects at his funeral tomorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Being a mother I can only imagine how painful this must be for your entire family.
I do not know you or your son, but I know what you are going through because I lost my son Steven 6 years ago due in a car accident. He was 24 years old and a student at Winthrop. In order to get through this difficult time you must trust in the Lord to give you strength and comfort during the difficult days to come. It will give you comfort to know your Steven is in the arms of the Lord and he will always be with you in spirit and he is watching over your family from heaven. This loss is some thing you will never get over but you will learn to live with the loss. God will give your peace and he will carry you through this time of sorrow. May God wrap his loving arms around your family and know Steven is with Our Lord and making music with the angels. My prayers are with you.
I don't know you or your son but I am heartbroken for your extraordinary pain and loss. May God bless you all.
Lynn - my heart goes out to your family! I know you thought the world of Steven. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Jeanne, Shawn and the family of Steven,
I will always remember that sweet, happy little boy that made his mamma so proud! I am heartbroken over the loss of Steven. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are for you and the family! Lots of Love, Hugs and Prayers!! Cat
What a senseless tragedy, one that no one should have to endure. My heart sank when I first heard the news. I have a granddaughter who is a senior at Clemson and I've worried about her every day she's been there. My grandson will be a junior at Winthrop and there is some comfort that he is close to home. I've worked with four people who have lost children at young ages and I know it is your cross to bare for the rest of your lives. God bless and be with you all!
I pray that you all will find peace and comfort in this tragic passing of Steven and May God be with you. I also pray for Steven's soul that he may also find peace.
He was precious, and loved, he will always be remembered...he is in a better place, find peace in that.
I am sorry for the loss of this young man. I have prayed that his death was not in vain and that others will better themselves as a result. I did not have the privilege to know him, but from what I have read he was an outstanding young man who did not let his disability get in the way of his dreams. While we may never understand why he had to be taken at such a young age, please rest assured in knowing that his memory will live on in others.
Thoughts and prayers are with the family ....may god bless you during this trying time
I am so sorry for the loss of your son Steven. My heart goes out to all his family and friends. May God be with you and walk with you in your time of need.
I don't know your son but I have been reading what happen to him and I'm sorry for your lost
May our God be with you.Its so sad
Such an incredibly heartbreaking road to travel. Please know Steven's family & friends are in my thoughts and prayers.
Mr Grich, May your Sons Memory be Eternal. I also as a father unfortunately going through a divorce and not seeing the light and heartbeat of my life cannot imagine your pain... All I can say is Heaven has an Angel , The Lord will not let you down..
Mr. Grich, As a father of two sons, I can only tell you that I feel some of your pain. I cannot imagine however the true pain you feel. What a waste of a beautiful and bright young life. God will in HIS time bring you a modicum of peace. Your joy in having Steven for 23 years will carry you through it all. In Greek there is a condolence at times like this that says "Zoi Se Sas", which means a long life to those left behind. Again for whatever it's worth I share your pain.
Steve,Lynn and entire Grich family
When people say they can only imagine what you are going through I unfortunately know first hand loosing my 33 yr old son almost 8 yrs ago. You will get through this but never over it! Please keep your faith strong believe me this will give you much support. Jesus was killed and our blessed mother! lost her son. She was Jesus's mother and she had to endure this. Who am i compared to her! I sat in back of your parents in church a few hours before Steven was killed and the gospel stressed how humble HIS beginning and what he endured to show us the way and to help us understand our own lives. The fact this happened to Him helped me deal with my son's passing and i know he also did not die only in this life. I hope this helps in some small way
Lynn, words cannot express the sorrow of your loss. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers during this difficult time.
To Steven's Dad: Your pain is so vividly portrayed in the poem you wrote. I pray for you and your family to find peace and acceptance at this difficult time. Your son sounds like an amazing young man. May he provide you comfort from above. God bless.
No parent should ever have to lose a child. My prayers are with you and your family as well as all Stephen's friends at this time. Praying for you to have the strength to get through this difficult time. RIP Stephen
I can't imagine your pain. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort during this times and going forward. Many prayers to your family
