I thought I would pass this along.I don't know any of the genealogy behind Steven's family, but he was a very dear friend to my 14 year old son.A child well loved and dearly missed by all that knew him.
Cause of death we believe to be a heart attack.Steven had made his life right with the Lord and for all of those who think it can't happen to a young child.Let me say Steven was as happy and as alive as could be on Saturday and by Saturday night/Sunday morning he dropped dead with a heart attack.He had NEVER been diagnoised with any health problems let alone heart problems and drugs were NOT a factor, he simply didn't feel well that night.
