    Dear Steve, Denise and family,

    You are in my prayers. It was my privilege to get to know Margaret and Del best in the long hours waiting in the hospital. Theirs was such a real, living faith in God with honest dialogue with the tough questions of life. I was struck by their vibrancy and composure. Such a legacy they leave you, love for you and for God… May that love guide your own life’s journey for all your days.

    wishing you the deep peace God brings,
