    We are never prepared for the loss of a loved one; but Almighty God is always prepared to help us through that loss. May His promise of the resurrection (John 5:28,29) begin the healing process in your heart, and may His love surround you with the comfort only He can give. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)  Please accept my sincere condolences.

    As a member of First Bap. Church, I am praying for your family and trusting that He will comfort you and give you peace, Psalm 29:11. With all the evil in this world, we are thankful we have a Savior who paid for all our sin and gives us His grace and eternal life. John 10:27-29 promises our Shepherd keeps us forever and nothing can take us out of His hand.

    I’m so sorry for your loss Mr and Mrs Lee. I’ve known SteveO since I moved to fernandina junior year of high school. I went into the military when me and Stephen were 19 and when I got out 4 years ago and moved back to fernandina Stephen was one of the very few people that made time to hang out with and catch up. Stephen was an awesome man who will be sorely missed in the community. Coming back to the fernandina beach area will never be the same for.me. Stephen will never be forgotten.
