My heart goes out to the Erwin family and friends. May God wrap you in his arms and help with the healing. Steve was a great friend of mine ever since 1st grade and all through school. God bless his entire family and many prayers to you all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family following the loss of such a wonderful man. Our family will always treasure the experiences we shared up on the hill at HHS. (I don't miss making all those sandwiches.) Steve was a special person and he has a special place in my family's memories. He was Mickey's buddy and one of the people that meant so much to him during the time that he played football at HHS. I pray that God will heal your hearts and give you comfort until your together again. Please know that we are here for you should you need anything.

Love and prayers,

Wendy Farley and family

Val...I won't be able to attend, but I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Mom told Mary last night. I spoke with Mary on the phone shortly afterward. She said she wanted to be there, but they are in Boston with Ian...and I am "dogsitting" their extended family. If we can do anything, let us know. Melanie Craze

Val, Todd, Luke, Butchie and the other family members,
I am continually lifting up prayers for all of you as you walk through this Valley of the Shadow of death. Steve will be missed greatly. We don't understand WHY the Lord chose to call him to Heaven so soon. That will be revealed to us when we join him there. We have the guarantee of a mansion in Glory by the grace of Jesus. Steve has seen the glorious face of the Savior and is rejoicing with Judy, Butch and Mammaw Bailey.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

God loves you and so do I. Maryellen (Marr)

Val, I will never forget the beautiful smile and his funny wit he shared with me every time I saw you guys. I feel very honored to have been friends with your family over many years. We at Huntington Hose will always have a special place in our hearts for Steve. It doesn't seem fair that he could be taken from us so suddenly. Although he's gone from our lives, he will live on in our hearts forever. Val, please keep in touch. Sincerely, Carolyn and family.

I coached with Steve at WVU Tech just a few years ago. Was a great guy who always made you smile or had something to say to make you laugh. Prayers go out to you and your family. Steve will definately be missed.

So sorry for your loss. I used to work with your dad, (Dewey) and have met Lola on several occasions. Kelly Harper Ferguson let us know of this tragedy. Words cannot express how I feel--and there are never the "right" words for this type of happening. Just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
