Not sure what to say?

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Judy and Family, I was very sorry to learn of Stevie's death. He was a delight from his youngest years. It was wonderful for the Barber Family to grow up across the street (Superior St) from the LaPanta Family. We have many happy memories! It was with delight that I discovered the wonderful book authored by Stevie, as I browsed the bookstore while in Duluth for a Christmas visit a few years back. Now it is a family treasure!

Sincerely ...

Judy and family,

Unfortunately, Bob and I did not hear that Steve had passed away until after the funeral. We will send a card and note, but we wanted to let you know we are stunned and sad to hear about Steve's passing. He was a man of integrity, a man to be admired.

Dear Judy & Family,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Steve. Wendy and I just found out while we were watching A.J. play in the State football tournament. Steve was truly a great man. As you know I worked with Steve for a number of years and I always looked up to Steve aa mentor but more importantly as a man that had the ability to impact and make others around him feel special. We send our heartfelt prayers to you and your family.

I'm so sorry for your families loss - I always remember Mr. LaPanta coaching me and Anthony's little league baseball team and remember him running down the base paths in his sandles.

LaPanta Family,

So sorry to hear about Steve. He was a friend of our family and for my wife and I he was our real estate agent when we bought our first house. He had a very warm personality and we both got to really enjoy our time spent driving all over the cities searching for the right house, hearing stories about his interactions with our family and just being in the presence of a truly great person.

Not much else to say other than Steve was a great guy!

Dear Judy and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time.

Dear Judy,I just found out about your tremendous loss. I am deeply sorry and I know that no matter what we say nothing will chage.But please know that our prayers will be with you and all your family so that the good Lord will guide you with his love and guidance .You are a very special lady and I hope you find peace within your heart and know that true friends are just a call away.Love,PS

Judy and KIds,
Such a privilege it was, to have seen Steve this past July, to have known him at Totino-Grace, then and now. His "A Long Way Home" will be my Christmas read again this season.
