So sorry for your loss if there's anything I can do for you let me know

I am so sorry for your loss . Stephen was a wonderful young man who was taken way too soon. I was an educational aide at quitman for 3 years and I got to know Stephen in classes that I substituted in as well as in classes I was monitoring. I always would pronounce his name incorrectly and he would just answer anyways without drawing attention to my mistake. Such a kind and respectful young man. Again I am so sorry! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers .
