Add to this grove

The Christian Fellowship of Healing has begun this grove for Steve, who was our administrator. We wanted to share our appreciation of him, knowing that he loved trees. Here are some memories and reflections from a few of our members:

'Steve was always like a breath of fresh air, so interested in music, climbing, history and his church life. He had a very gentle, kind nature and mixed so well in any group'

'I remember Steve for his gentleness and laughter and the way he always listened to people'

'We will surely miss Steve's very special and unique combination of gifts his philosophical and religious erudition, his strategic thinking, wonderful clarity and so importantly, the humour he brought to help lighten us all'

'Steve showed us a way to move into the 21st century, a way to be with cancer and a way to stay with us for so long. Thank you Steve for your thoughtprovoking ways to look at our ministry and for showing so openly your deeply felt faith'

It’s two years today so I will remember you especially on this day. Wish you were here. Loved looking at old photos of you when we were all kids. All the family are with you today.Loving memories and lets get this ‘grove’ growing!
Steve was able to reach a lot of people. He had many friends who loved him and enjoyed his company. He was very patient and kind and his friends and family will miss him deeply. Steve loved nature but also liked to have fun and made life interesting. God Bless Steve and his memory.
