    I’ll miss you darlin. We were together a long long time. I’m sorry I found out on Facebook but we expected that long ago. No matter what you became at the end we had a good decade or more and I will always remember you and that we remained friends. I’m glad I was able to kiss you goodbye at the hospital and I am grateful that your pain is over.

    I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear
    mother, and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah
    25 verse 8 – “The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever,
    and wipe away the tears from all faces.” Also at Revelation 21
    verse 4, we find God’s promise to remove both pain and death.

    My cousin Stevie was an amazing man and In childhood he was my best friend, we shared so many things that would last a lifetime, we lost touch in adulthood as many of us do but we were able to reconnect and I had the chance to tell him I loved him very much. Even in his last days he was making goofy faces to make me laugh! Gone way too soon!, but never forgottenI miss you & I’ll see you soon! RIP

    Hey man,sorry to c u leave so early,u always made me smile when u walked into the room,RIP my friend,

  13. Emily Smith on February 2, 2018 at 1:30 am

    Thank you, to Steve’s brother richie. You had such kind words about him, and for me as well. It meant the world to me that we were able to remember that the good times are far more important than the bad, and that you were his friend, his worry, his lil yet giant bro. You made him very proud of you and you know why. Believe me he loved you dearly, and you were such a big part of his day. I’m so happy that you were there to protect him and love him in your own way. It must have been hard to say what you did, and I’m just so grateful. If I never talked to you again, I would remember that kindness forever. Mrs. Mahoney I am so sorry for your loss, so deeply saddened by this. I think about you in my prayers. He loved you the. Most. Betty and john, I am so sorry that our visits will have to end for now. I’m glad he loved penny and I. He was fair and funny and kind. I never loved anything or anyone that much. Knowing that he loved penny and me was known to me but so good to hear. And I will always love him. He was so special to me. To Your whole family. Sara, beautiful Sara. I ache for the loss you must feel. He will look out for you. He loved you everyday, 24/7. He always will. I know the wake is over, and it is settling in. I’m sure we all miss his voice and jokes. I used to joke I’d sing you’re the best thing that ever happened to me at your funeral. You were my best friend and you made me so strong in many ways. You were my teacher lover and friend, a generous hard worker. I will absolutely keep our baby safe, and she’s okay, she’s actually great. I will teach her to swim like I promised. I am not empty without you, I am full of love of and joy from knowing you. Penny has jazz hands..I will grieve and heal but it’s so hard. I loved your drama, to which I will add for Shawn, whom I have not met, you should know he was so glad you called him. He was heartbroken for your sake, worried about it a lot. referenced you as his little boy. He said you wanted to keep his name. He was proud of you. He wanted you to keep it. To all the girls he loved, he loved you so much. His friend Trish, who I met, and Sacha who I didn’t know, he thought of you as BEAUTIFUL vibrantly creative and kind women, and I am certain that he valued your FRIENDSHIP. To Mr. Butcher, his brother in law, he thought you were the bees knees, and loved saying that he traded you leather pants for a sleek leather coat and he just thought that was the bees knees. I’m so glad his cats mom and Richie were there in the last hour, and I’m so glad Cern opened up the portal for him. Steve was a masterpiece of a human. I’m better for knowing you. I just wanted to thank richie, who hung out with us everyday, and to say of course he loved you, in a manly kind of way. I wish it had been forever and endless, you were so brave and strong and you fought so hard for so long. You were a warrior. You were everything. You’re the best thing that ever happened to me. Thanks again rich for reaching out to me and penny. It means so much to me. My house isn’t right without him. I’ve rewatched every movie we had. I found the lucky frog. Now you’re really the man of my dreams. I’m glad you let yourself love again, you deserved so much love, and I’m so so lucky to have been loved by you and to share so many years of effortless happiness with you. I hope you will rest in peace, but that doesn’t sound like your style so enjoy the dimensions and I will be looking up.

    To the whole Mahoney family

    Time has made me me think alot I am guilty.
    I am truly sorry for being a complete liar in regards of the paternity of my daughter Penny. I falsely and wrongly stated her as Steves biological daughter she is not her father is Frank Mitchell truth be told I suffer from both mental illness and duel diagnosis in my psychosis I feel a deep sense of great guilt for all the emotional pain and suffering that I caused everyone so much. I apologize again by admitting I was 100% wrong for my treachery and dishonestly all these years and the abusive way as the primary aggressor I treated Steve and family physically when I forgot who and where I was off my meds. Okay then. Moving on to greener pastures and new ventures hoping it will work out here.
