My sincere condolences to the family Kehrer for the lost of your beloved Steven, sharing this message from the Bible where our God Jehovah promised a resurrection for our dear ones Acts 24:15, and promised everlasting life here on the earth in a renewed paradise Psalms 37:11,29, while we wait for these blessings in a near future that the peace of God be with the family.

Family of Steve, My deepest condolences to the family. I will always remember Steve as someone who always had a smile and always made me smile. We started kindergarten together and grew through grade school. He was one of the few all around nice guys. Vickie sending hugs and prayers your way.

I recently had the chance to work with Steve @ Prairie State. We had a lot of great conversations about life in the Union as well as life in general. Rest in Christ my brother. You will be remembered.
