|Let the memory of Stephen be with us forever|
"Your birthday was yesterday, Dad. You would have been 73. We still miss you everyday!! We love you!!"
"Coming up to Christmas I remember the first time I met Steve, at the home of my dear sister-in-law Sammy. What a gorgeous, friendly host he was then, and through the years of wonderful family feasts that I will never forget. From slow cooked Alabama BBQs to Christmas turkeys, Sammy and Steve cooked and entertained from the heart. Andi"
"Thank you for the photos, uncle Joe!!"
"Hey dad, it's been 2 years since we lost you. I still miss and love you more than ever. It's hard out here without you. I hope you are having a good time with uncle Rick and whoever else you have met up there in heaven. I know you are watching over us. I love and miss you so much and that will never go away. Love you dad!!"
"Stephen, I miss spending time with you! I wish I were outside now smoking a CIG while you smoked a cigar talking about anything and everything! Miss you!!!! My love! Andy!"
"Dad, we still miss you greatly. I wish you were here. Love you Dad."
"Happy birthday, Daddy! You would have been 71 today. I miss and love you sooo much!"
"Dad, it has been a year since we lost you. Can't believe it. I have been to the Bahamas and shark fishing. Wish I could show you the pictures of both trips. I still miss you just as much as when you first left us. I love you, Dadddy!"
"I know you are at peace now. Say hi to my dad. I miss both of you. Hope you both are enjoying golf together!"
"Dad, it's been a year now and I still miss you more than ever. There are times when I am unsure of my decisions and wish you were here to talk me through them. The other day, I was asked what I wanted for my birthday. Nothing came to mind. If I could have anything, I would want a hug from you and to tell you I love you again. Life is complicated and hard and I miss having you to tell me things will be ok. I hope you are happy where you are and know that you are not forgotten here, but missed and loved very much. I love you daddy!! I know I'll see you again some day. Xoxo"
"I miss you so much. Can't even express it in words, how much I miss you!! I love you sooooo much, Daddy!"
"Steve, I remember you so well, with the great crew neck sweaters. We went to High School together, and you always had a big smile it was the biggest ever. Your joking around , and great personality. Your friend Gerard Smith.. sorry about your passing.. it looks to me you were un real father , and left, a lot of great memories for your beautiful family.. Mary Ann Marino"
"Dad, Stephens wedding was beautiful! I know you were there with us watching your son get married. I miss you everyday and wish you could be here to experience these meaningful events. I wish I could have just one more hug from you Dad. Your birthday did not go unnoticed this year. Your absence has created a void that all your children feel. We miss you so much and will always love you!"
"Happy Birthday Dad! I hope you enjoyed the wedding from your vantage point. Love and miss you Dad."
"Happy birthday, Dad! I love you and miss you more than I can express. Stephen's wedding was nice. I wish you were there. We all missed you so much. You would have liked it. Love you, Dad!"
"You will be remembered by your wonderful children. They loved you so much. I will also remember you for the years we had together and how much I loved you. Sometimes we get distracted about what it means to love and that is a sad thing. I will always remember the good times that we had together and focus on those times. Please pray for us to be able to have joy and peace in our lives."
"We will be forever blessed with our three children. Life does not always give us what we want, for whatever reason. It only makes us stronger to continue on and Steve, you will continue on through your children. They love you and despite our marital difficulties, I will always love you too."
"I miss you so much, dad! I love you!"
"Happy Father's Day, Dad! I miss and love you so very much!"
"You were a pretty good cook.... the egg drop soup was amazing. You raised some amazing children too. I lost touch with Lauren for a little while, but she's always had a place in my heart... no matter the time or distance. I'm thankful she had you for her father."
"Steve you were always so welcoming whenever I came, so interested in what was happening and it was great to have you on my side! Your cooking was legendary, I can taste it now. Thank you. Rest in peace, you did well."
You were an ox made out of oak, but I still can't believe you're gone. Now at peace from a life that might've given you less fair shakes than most, I will fondly remember you forever. Wherever you are is now a family reunion, and say hi to my dad, and your dad. Love, Neph Terry."
"Dad, I wish you were here. I still have questions to ask you. What do i do now? I love you so much!"
"To Stephen, Lauren, Kaitlin & Diana,
My sympathy for you all is almost too much to express. Steve meant so much to me. I've known Steve since I was 15 and have many fond memories.. He was the big brother I never had. We always had a special bond and I will miss him. You "kids" are what he lived for and loved you deeply. You all made him proud. Diana, you were his angel."
"i last spoke to steve 4 weeks ago.i am his cousin fron north carolina and have many fond memories from our youth.i spent 2 great summers at port washington with he,george,and rick.during hi school.he and i went to summer school at north carolina one year and had a great time.later steve,rick,and i had a great fishing trip to florida.wish i could have seen him more but we had good phone con"
"Rest in peace, Steve and thank you for our three wonderful children."
"Steve, you inspired many of us with your enormous courage throughout your life...especially during this past year.
I will forever remain grateful for our friendship which spanned nearly 55 years. You will be sorely missed by so many people whose lives you touched deeply.
"I met Stephen in 1999 when I was working at the IBM building in Seattle.
Along way from home, new to IBM, Seattle and the USA Stephen made an instant impression.
He was so kind to myself and other work colleagues, his sense of humour lit up the office.
Nothing was too much trouble, he just liked helping people and was genuinely concerned that I settled into my job and provided as much assistanc"
"Steve, I miss you so much. You were such a kind man who never complained. You set the bar so high. You were a great man."
"So many fun memories most going back to our summer trips to Reydon shores. Joe me and Steve would drive out Sunday night after work,
do as much damage as we could to ourselves in one night and than head to Shinacock Inlet to scuba dive. I will never forget those wonderful times we had together. Stephen, we will never forget you"
This song always makes me think of Dad... our lives will never be the same without him. I love you Daddy and will be missing you forever."
"I love you, dad!"
"I love you so very much, daddy! I will miss you for the rest of my life! You will always be remembered. I know I will see you again and get to give you a big hug and kiss when that happens. Have fun with Uncle Rick, Charlie, and my baby girl Jezebell."
"Miss you and love you so much Dad. Wish we could have spent more time together but know that I enjoyed the time that we had very much. I know that you are in a better place and most likely enjoying a cigar with Rick right about now. I love you Dad and will always keep your memory close to my heart. I hope that one day I am able to be at least half the man that you were. Love you Dad."
Have a suggestion for us?
