November 1, 1991 - August 18, 2019
You see this handsome man and his forever fur baby? That’s my son and I am so proud of the man he became. There are endless stories I can share about how silly, loving and caring he was but we all have those stories because Stephon blessed us by allowing us into his world. His circle was small and changed so much throughout the years, giving each of us a little piece of him to carry forever – this is the gift he’s left us and none of us will be the same because of it.
And the big fur baby? He decided a few years ago that it was easier to watch over Stephon from above. But not anymore – Stephon and PD are home together and I’m sure PD brought all his friends along to greet Stephon. I cannot imagine the welcome Stephon received when he went to be with the Lord! I know grandpa and grandma were there, and Uncle James too. His adopted grandpa was yelling “Teflon” when he saw that Stephon was called home. Slade was one of Stephon’s best friends and they get to spend eternity cutting up.
I just know that he’s surrounded by all his family and is in loving hands, celebrating his homecoming. You see, it does not matter what we think the timing should be – Stephon was an amazing young man and our Father saw that and said, “I want him by my side, he has fulfilled his purpose.”
Now we all have the honor to know that Stephon is watching over us, loving us unconditionally and he is our protector – like he always has been…he just has a different view now.
Flowers are beautiful and are such a kind gesture but I know that Stephon would love for his fur babies to be taken care of for him. If you’d like to, donations can be made to one of Stephon’s favorite charities, Reggie’s Rescue. You can find them at https://reggiesfriends.org/ or on Facebook.
A visitation will be held at Darst Funeral Home on Friday August 23, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00pm. A service for Stephon will take place on Saturday August 24, 2019 at 9:00am in the Gardens at Darst Funeral Home.
