    My deepest sympathies to all his family and friends. Cindy, you’ve been through a lot and this is by far the worst. There is no love like a mothers love for their child. My love and prayers to all of you.

    Idk where or how to begin, Stephen… We were so close growing up. Have so many great memories over the years that I’ll never forget. Like the time you round-house kicked me in the room and I flew onto and broke that wooden rocking horse… Aunt Cindy whooped us then punished us before allowing me to go home for another round of whoopin and punishment. Lol! We framed many houses together in our 20s. You were a pretty darn good carpenter. You’ll always be in my heart and our memories together will never fade. I love you cuz! Till we meet again! Hug mawmaw and pawpaw for me.

    May your memories see his smile and hear his laughter. Surely he will be missed but will live on in all the minds of those who had the privilege of knowing him. I am so sorry for your loss.
