My thoughts and prayers are with you all . Stephen was my special buddy , my friend, and my sweet cousin.... I will miss him forever . He was one of a kind and such a special person. I never saw him or talked to him anywhere that he didn't tell me "I love you " ! We had many fun times and laughs in the last few years, and for that I am so grateful . I will miss you my friend.......Love and prayers , Cheryl

To the family of Stephen Conner: Sheriff Conner, there is not enough words to express how you are feeling about the loss of your son. Do know this, that there are people praying for you to receive the comfort that you need at this moment.

Dobie and Diane,
There are no words to express express the loss of a child. I can only pray that the Lord wraps his arms around you and your family, during this time that follows. However, we must remember as Christians we are the ones that suffer, during this period because the family members that have went on to be with the Lord along with other family members, which were waiting for his arrival, at this time and I am sure that Stephen is looking down probably sitting with your mother Dobie eating cookies smiling, may God bless your family.

My heart is always with you, Dobie, Diane, Stephanie and the rest of the family God bless.
