My deepest sympathies and condolences to your family. Stephen and I shared a special friendship. He was my District Manager for Tech HiFi and later grew into a great friendship that spanned many decades. Although we did not keep up on a regular basis I used to give him a call just to touch base when I was in town. Stephen and I had a mutual respect for one another and we both appreciated our jib jab exchanges of dry witty humor and sarcasm and talking about the old days with Tech HiFi. I will miss him, but his memory will always be with me. Rest in peace old friend. You may be gone, but never forgotten.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Stephen’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can’t change anything and can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort be with you to help you cope. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17) Lean on Him in the days to follow. For the Bible’s answers to questions about grief and death please visit JW.org.
