I had the great pleasure of working with Steven in fifth grade at the Day School. He was such a gentle, sweet young man who would thank me each time I worked with him. He was so genuinely appreciative and possessed great humility. I can truly say I have a special place in my heart for Steven....I can only imagine the enormity of your grief at losing such a beautiful young man...please know that he left a lasting warm impression on my heart and I am sure on anyone who had the gift of getting to know him.

Dear Sandy, Michelle and Welch family-
You have been in my thoughts since I learned of Steven's passing. There can't possibly be anything I can say that will counter the grief and despair each of you are experiencing. I spoke to Steven one morning at Best Fitness at Drum Hill a few months ago and thoroughly enjoyed conversing with him. It brought back the good ole days when he attended the Day School. Moving forward do your best to hold onto the happy memories of Steven, I am certain these pleasant thoughts and stories are numerous; about all his goodness and the love he demonstrated to family and friends.
My deepest sympathy of losing Steven. Your family and Steven are in included in my prayers.
Sincerely-
