Jimmy, Bonnie Gay, and Carolyn,
The last time I saw Hilda was at Cody and my Mom's memorial at the beach at the James River. She showed up with rose petals to float out with them. I was touched deeply by her lovely gesture. Some of my earliest memories are of your Mom and I'm sure I've never seen her without a smile on her beautiful face. I loved your Dad but seemed to gravitate to Hilda. She was so gentle but solid as a rock. She will be missed dearly by so many, but I hope you can find some comfort in knowing she is with God. I love y'all.

My heart goes out to the Stepp family and long time friends Jimmy, Debbie and Carolyn.

I remember your mom so well from High School when she would let us kids come in the house to wait
for the bus on those freezing cold mornings. I understand your grief well, my mom went to glory 3 years ago this past November. My prayers will be with you all.

Mrs. Stepp was always one of my favorite patients, such a sweet soul! She never complained and had a positive outlook despite everything that she was dealing with. I am sorry for the family's loss of such a great woman. She always put a smile on my face, as I hope she does yours as you are remembering your many years you were able to share with her.

My heart is truly saddened by the loss of granny stepp! Truly an angel left earth and went home to heaven on Monday! I am thankful for the time I had to get to know her all over again in the past 8 months. She welcomed me back in the family with open arms and was so happy to have her "Bubba" back around again!! I will miss her spunky attitude and her cute little giggle but I know she will be watching us from above and keeping all of us straight!! Rest in peace granny and like I told you the last time I saw you sunday afternoon "Love ya, get some rest now and see I'll see ya soon"!!!!
