I am so sorry for your loss. A lot of my family spent many hours with noth Steve and Mike. Driving around in their hearse and the Bonneville. Mike taught me how to drive while Steve yelled at my mistakes. We played cards together and both Steve and Mike worked at the hospital with my mom Mary Lou Boston.

I remember Steve As quiet and reserved, but then I remember him also with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in another. I remember his voice, high-pitched when he was complaining or bitching at somebody….. he was a character, a good heart man !
So sorry for your loss, please except my condolences to the whole family . Your cousin Shawn Farrier Batche

To the Farrier’s and everyone who knew him, I’m terribly sorry for your loss, it differs from person to person so I could never truly understand what you’re going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and though it probably does nothing to diminish the hurt, I wrote this poem in the hopes it’ll provide some comfort:

Don’t think of them departed
as a sorrow on your sleeve,
but a smile, aged and beaming
from a place they’ll always be;

like a technicolor portrait
poised nostalgic in low light,
how a half-grin of remembrance
parts the pall of frigid night,

when a smell floats past, perfuming,
making twinges of the heart,
just remember; though the stars die
what comprised them never parts.

To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Stephen has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God’s Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ. READ John 5:28, 29, Job 14:14, 15,Psalms 37:29,Matthew 6:9,10, Matthew 5:5 and Revelation 21:2-4

My thoughts and prayers go out to Steve’s family and friends. He was a great guy with such a great personality. I enjoyed working with him and talking with him. He was such a great person and a hard worker. He will be missed by so many. I am so saddened by him passing away. We had many funny conversations and joked around. I will never forget him bringing his cool finds to work and showing me so we could look them up on ebay. Our jokes too. RIP Steve. You are truly missed.
