Greetings, Team Steven. Tomorrow marks the 1-month anniversary of Steven’s passing. As you can imagine, the family continues to grieve and misses that beautiful boy’s sweet smile. Days like today (Father’s Day) and tomorrow are especially hard. Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers for strength for his parents, stepdad, siblings and extended family.
We would like to invite you to join us in a universal Balloon Release this coming Saturday, wherever you may be. You can gather with friends or family in a park or backyard, or you can do it on your own. We will be releasing RED balloons into the air wherever we all are at 1:00 p.m. CST on Saturday, June 26th. On the 26th, it will be 1 month since we released the red balloons at his graveside service. This Saturday you will ALL have an opportunity to participate! It will be a great moment to send up some love to Steven and out to his family. Imagine his big smile as he sees all those red balloons rising to greet him up in Heaven! Feel free to take pictures and post them afterward to our Team Steven page on Facebook.
There is more significance regarding the date of June 26th for the Balloon Release. It will be the 12th anniversary of the day Steve gave a kidney to Steven, and they always celebrated June 26th as Steven’s kidney birthday. 🙂
So please … feel free to join us on Saturday as we celebrate the life of a young man who is so missed. I know Steven inspired so many along the way – this is your opportunity to pay tribute to him along with us. If Steven made a difference in your life, feel free to post your thoughts directly to the Team Steven wall on Facebook, or add your comments here. Thank you again for all of your wonderful support. Be well.
