Stephen Ried's Memorial Service

For all of us that knew Steve we hold a special place in our hearts for him. He was one of my best friends since 12 years old and I am glad he was with me for the last 21 years. Unfortunately his life was cut short and now he is gone. Steve did not have life insurance and now funeral costs are an unforseen event left on the shoulders of those who loved him. 
I understand that life is busy and we all have our own obligations financially, however I am asking those who knew Steve and loved him to do what they can to support him now. This will be the last gift you can give your friend...who I consider a brother. Life is short...I am reminded that this over used statement is true. Let us all search our hearts for the laughs we have shared and memories made and send our friend home to rest the best way we can. Timing is a factor here and I am told Monday June 2nd is the day funds are due in order to have an open casket. That is our goal.
