Sorrow is possibly the only emotion that words can’t adequately describe.
Rest in peace my brother. ‘Til we meet again.

Dear Erin and Family – I am so sorry for your loss. You are in our prayers. love, Heather Stoffers
Thanks for the touching post. Very sorry to hear the news.
I’m so sorry Erin! Our thought will be with you.
Your family is in our prayers. I have so many fond memories of Steve. These include crazy stories your dad would tell my dad at the law office about Steve’s early teenage years to watching Steve jump off the bridge in Alpine after working all day with him and your dad on the cabin to getting to know him better in high school and in the years following. Most recently, I had the chance as a bishop to work with him a time or two through the funeral process. He was great with people. I admired his ability to work closely with so many people in such delicate situations.
He is fortunate to have a family that loves him dearly. I know that he loved all of you just as much. He will be missed by many including the members of our family.
Erin, I’m thinking of you and your family. Sending you wishes of peace and comfort.
So sorry for your loss. And being so young, leaving behind so many that loved him.
Erin, Thoughts and prayers to you from our family. So sorry for your loss!
Erin, I am so sorry. There is nothing that anyone can say or do to ease the sense of loss you must feel. Brothers are our first best friends, and are always watching out for us. I’m sure he still is. Just know that many many prayers are being offered on behalf of you and your family. We love you!!
I’m so sorry for your loss…. You and your family are in my prayers. Ti sono vicina in questo momento cosi doloroso. Ti mando un abbraccio fortissimo e pieno d’amore!!! Ti voglio bene!
I’m so sorry for your great loss, for you and your family. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Steve was always so kind and helpful whenever we ran into each other. He will be greatly missed.
I was so shocked to hear Steve had passed away. (Been in Wash DC for 2 weeks) May you and your family find solace and comfort during this difficult time. Steve was one of those people that made you instantly smile and laugh. I am richer from having known him. He will be greatly missed.
What a huge hole in your hearts to bear at this time. My deepest condolences to you, your family, his family… I will keep you all close in my thoughts and prayers and ask that you are all lifted up, comforted, and carried through.
Matthew and I want to extend our condolences to you at the loss of your brother. I was quite numb when I saw this post. I am grateful you were able to fly to UT for his funeral and to be surrounded by family. It is hard to comprehend.
