It is with the deepest sadness, and a broken heart that I write to you. My brother, Steve 54, passed away tonight from a heart attack. He was teaching a Bible Study when the Lord called him home. Please pray for Susan and Jen, and my entire family.
Steve was a giant of faith. Never wavering in what he knew and believed. He touched so many lives with his passion for Christ. We were two years apart, but he was my best friend. He welcomed me to tag along through high school, and always saw me better than I really was. He loved me. I loved him.
I can only imagine that a few hours ago, Steve met back up with Mom and Dad. What a reunion that must have been!
Life is too short. Love God, hold your family close and don't let insignificant things come between you and the people you love. For my 52 years on this earth, I had a friend, encourager, protector and brother. We were never at odds with each other, not once. I am the man I am today because of him. I already miss you "Stev".
God's grace is amazing and sufficient.
