To Mrs. Frances and Family:
I am so very saddened by your loss of Stephen, stunned to be exact. Stephen was a good friend to any and all that ever met him and he will certainly be missed by me as well. Countless lives have been touched by Stephen and I am proud to have called him one of my Classmates of the Class of 1985. May God wrap you in His Peace that passes all understanding and may you also feel His mercy and His grace. Please know that though Stephen may have left us, his light shines on and his memories shine as well.
God Bless! Curtis Birchfield

Heaven's gate are open wide
To receive His Servant, Stephen, who lifted many lives.
Angels rejoice, God's hand reached out
To His Servant, Stephen, who has finished his work.
Many honors, awards and certificates the Servant Stephen has been given,
But no greater reward is greater than meeting His Father, who art in Heaven.

A Crown of Glory, a Crown of Praise
To His Servant, Stephen, let us celebrate with our hands and all should raise.
Love to you, Frances at this time of sadness. I'm sorry I can't be there with you, but you know my love, heart and tears are shared with you, for one of our Yellow Jackets has flown away. As friends with sons like ours, we know the relationship of close friends and what we all shared and it was all good through knowing Jesus Christ in our lives. Even though I'm here in Colorado and you are there in Texas, memories will always be keep near. Through it all, through it all, we'll learn to depend of upon His word.

Love and Hugs,
O'Lain Richard Nesby and Darry Quinn Richard
