  2. Steve,
    I just wanted to say Happy Birthday. Morgan is doing so good, but I am sure you know that. They have asked her to be on a dance team at school and she’s really excited about it. She misses you so very much. She talks about the things you did together all the time. It makes me cry when she does. She’s getting so big. I had her pictures made and she looks 16. It’s crazy how fast she is growing. I wish you could see her.

  5. Steve was a wonderful person. He had a heart as big as the come. He always had a moment for me when I was down or was happy for me when I was happy. He was the kind of person who only wanted to help and cared deeply about his family and friends. Morgan, his PRINCESS, was the biggest joy and always made him smile when she was around him or spoke of her. I thank God he brought Steve in my life, only if it was for a short period of time. Steve was truly genuine and I will miss him so much. I pray God will be with Morgan and his family during this difficult time.

  27. I am at a loss of words for what to say. I know that Morgan will miss her Daddy more than anyone will ever realize, and that she would be proud to know that so many people he touched loved him so much. I am thankful to his family for being there for her, even though we are so far from them. I am also very thankful for the thoughts and prayers that many have sent to her, even if right now she does not understand, as many of us don’t. He will be remembered always.

  32. Mr. and Mrs. Jones,
    I cannot truly convey my sorrow for ‘Sleeves’ loss, I am writing this four days after his ceremony because tears and computers don’t mix. Steve has been one of my dearest friends for many years. I sit and smile thinking back of the bottle rocket wars we used to have, all of us laughing so hard we were about to wet our pants.(Our foolish younger days). I can tell you that Steven Lee Jones has always been one of the best men, and best friend I ever knew and had. I’ll never forget the look on his face when he pulled his first Wahoo, (Saltwater fish)in my friends boat. That very same day we also saw a hammerhead shark as big as the boat cruise under us!(no feet in the water!)O: This is only an example of thousands of great moments I will always remember with Steve. My heart goes out to you, Mom and Dad, and most of all, precious little Morgan. Sleeve you will always be with me Brother…

    My wife Julie, and son Luke (who Steve never got to meet) send their deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

  34. It was 2 years ago today that you left. Morgan is so big and so smart. She misses you everyday. I know a lot of people who miss you, I just wish some of them who were around you a lot had been better friends. I will never get past your death.

  35. Hey dad. I just found this and I wanted to say how much I miss you. Every day I wonder how life would be different if you were here. My life would be brighter I know. But I wouldn’t have be opportunities I get now. I miss you so much you don’t understand. I wish that I could see you in person right about now. I love you dad.
