    I have read that the colors in heaven are so breath-taking that earth seems dull by comparison. I can just imagine Steve’s joy at all the beautiful colors. He made our world a brighter place in many ways and it makes me smile thinking of him painting our mansions in heaven.

    I know you are at peace with our Lord and Savior in Heaven above. Psalms 91.

    I appreciated our time together, you were like a brother to me over the years we have known each other.
    Looking forward to seeing you again one day.

    Steve, was truly one of a kind. Your complete devotion to Tammy was inspiring and hers to you. I will always remember your kindness and your smile and your meticulous way about yourself. I see your smile and sweetness and remember seeing you all the time at Chiqui’s and so kind and so funny too. Your memories will live forever and Tammy is blessed to have you as her angel. I know he loved his son and grandson and is their forever angel as well. Rest In Peace and glory. Tammy, my sweet cousin, an angel here on earth, you are loved and I am so sorry for your loss. Always in my heart.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
