    Denna and family,
    God bless you and your family at this time of loss. I am so sorry to hear of your husband’s death. God’s grace will be with you.

  • Denna,
    You and Steve have been a great blessing in our life. We loved having the pleasant suprise of seeing you both in Christopher Creek this past summer. This good news of the gospel helps us make sense of the loss of an amazing man! We love you and are praying for your encircling comfort.

    Dear Denna,
    I just found out about Steven’s passing from my sister Susan tonight. I am so sorry for this great loss. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time! I hope that you will be comforted often by all the wonderful memories and love you have shared through the years. May the Lord bless you and keep you at this time!

  • Denna, I am so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. He was a wonderful man and so highly thought of. I know that our sweet husbands are having a joyous reunion, although they surely are sad that they had to leave us so early. Hugs and prayers to you and your family as you mourn the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. OX

    Sweet Denna I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are the rock solid examples in my life. I can’t tell you how many times I drew upon these examples during times of difficulty, in serving, creativity and simply Christ like living. Your light and understanding of the Savior and firm testimony is evident in all you do. You and Steve will forever have an imprint in my heart.

  • To Mr. Ray’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from Jehovah God’s promises in the Bible at Revelation 21: 3, 4 and John 5: 28, 29 that there will soon be a time when there will be no more death, and we will see our dead loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
