    The pastors of all denominations who played golf with Steven in South Carolina, share their sorrow as we join you in this earthly grief. God knows your pain, may you know God's peace.

    Dear Fancita, children, and other dear ones of Steven,
    We grieve with you on the death of Pr. Steven. First, Tim Glenham (originally from St. Luke's when I interned there in the early 60's), and now long-time faithful Pastor Lorimer. May the Comfort and Peace of our blessed Lord Jesus surround you.

    In Christ's love, David & Diana

    Fancita, you and your family remain in our prayers. I will always remember Pastor Lorimer for his sermons and how he had just the right words to guide me through the week, for how he counseled Dave and me as we prepared for our life together, and for his baptisms -- carrying those precious babies up and down the aisle. He was there for two of the biggest events in my adult life -- our wedding and Wes' baptism. You graciously shared him with so many so that we could grow in our faith. He will be sorely missed. Love to you all.

    I am so sorry I won't be at the Memorial Service as I will still be out of town visiting family for Thanksgiving. It was an honor to know Steven and we all know he is in a better place. Rosalie Steinitz

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of loss and grief. The church on earth has lost a warrior of the faith while Heaven gained a blessed saint whose heart is full of praise for his loving Lord. May you know the hope and comfort of the resurrection through Christ our Lord.

    Dear Brother Steven,
    I will miss your wonderful smile, your great sense of humor and most of all your compassion for all you came in contact with. Thanks for making Christ a very important part of my life. See you in heaven.
