So very sorry Warlick and JoAnn. True servants of Christ!
We were so fortunate to spend a little time with Steve at the Cowboy game recently. Praying for comfort as the family goes through this time.
Dear Warlick and JoAnn,
We saw how you lovingly and patiently went through the ordeal with Steve in finding just the right heart for a son WITH a big heart! Just an example of the love we have for our children! We all miss Steve, but God had other plans for him. May God fill your hearts with peace. We love you deeply!
