Stephen’s 21st Birthday

Today would have been Stephen’s 21st birthday.  Any other year, Stephen’s favorite food would be served for dinner (spaghetti and meatballs), Amaw’s special chocolate cake would be baked, lots of bright balloons would decorate the dining room, silly hats would be worn, happy memories would be shared, gifts would be opened and our love for Stephen would be expressed.  Today there is no visible celebration, although November 1st will always be a special day. 

It is so fitting that Stephen was born on All Saints Day. For the majority of the 20 years and 3 months that Stephen lived on this earth, he embodied the Biblical meaning of a saint. 

Stephen,  “We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”  1 Thessalonians 1:3 (NIV)
