A note from Steve’s sister Kim Fessel:
Hello everyone. I am Steve’s sister Kim. I too, would like to extend a huge heartfelt thank you to all who have held Steve, Michelle and our entire family in your thoughts and prayers.
I look back at all of that has transpired over the past 15 days and I see God’s hand at work. I think my brother Mike so beautifully acknowledged and thanked everyone involved in Steve’s care both behind the scenes and in the forefront, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank each person and family that has written on Steve’s guestbook. Wow…you are amazing!
Please know your words have touched my heart so deeply and the tears I have shed, which have been many, are gently wiped away with your prayers, bible verses, poem, lyrics, stories of courage and faith, and your words of hope and love for a man and a family many of you have never met.
For me…that knowing is miraculous. To think of thousands of people across this vast world all united in thought and prayer for this extraordinary man and woman and his family. Truly, may God bless each and every one of you abundantly.
For now it is one day at a time. I know God has a special plan for you, my beloved brother, one filled with hope and love and peace. I know I love you with all my heart. And lastly I know I have always held a special place in your heart, and after a long talk or written in a card, you used to say to me “you are my hero, don’t ever forget that.” So now dear brother, I am saying it back to you…you are my hero, don’t ever forget that…
So go do what you do best. Shine a light for the world to see…
I love you,
