Dear Kelli, Mikey, Seth, and Jenna. I remember teaching Confirmation with your parents and then enjoying visits with them as Kelli and I came and went from your family’s home. Something that always struck me was how they prayed for you each to know how much God loved you; that always moved me. I pray you each know how much they prayed for and over you. I was so sorry to read of your Dad’s passing. I am praying for you all. May God hold you all in the palm of His hand, and may you feel comfort and peace as you all gather to share memories and love as you honor your father. I am so sorry for your loss. I hold you each close in prayer. God bless you all. In His Peace, Taffnee

Treasure the memories you have of Steve; he will live in your hearts forever. We enjoyed going out to dinner occasionally with Steve and Mick and had some great discussions about Husker Volleyball!
