|My cousin Steve loved and served God with all his heart, mind, soul and strength. He brought so much joy with him everywhere he went. I will never forget as a young teenager, that Steve and Phyllis were our youth leaders ar Franklin Church of God and took our entire youth group to a great music concert then back to their apartment where Phyllis made 10,000 grilled cheese sandwiches and a gallon of tomato soup! That was a great memory for me. My heart and prayers go to their family at this time. We rejoice because we know Steve is in the Presence of our Lord and reunited with his parents. I can just hear uncle Bub say, “Well big boy sure glad you are here now”. I pray you will be surrounded with Gods comfort and peace, and so many happy memories of a life well-lived. Love to you all my cousins. God bless you. Love, Cindi (Allen/Hogan) Karsh|
