    Avery McClure, Jr, and family,

    My wife, Brandie Hurst and I want to say that we are praying for your family during this process of grief. We pray for wisdom, courage, strength, and a sense of covering by the almighty’s hand. We pray that you will be comforted on days when it is hard to understand or comprehend, and we pray that you will be filled with days of joy and thankfulness of all the memories you can share about Steven to your family and others. (Brandie and Michael)


    This is a funny story I felt led to tell you about Steven. So of course we played football together and one late night we were on the practice field and Steven was playing cornerback and was up against Elder Smith. The play developed and happened to be a pass toward Elder from my perspective. At some point Elder and Steven got into an argument which turned into a fistfight while they both had helmets on. It was finally broken up, but Coach Helton decided he wanted them to run banks holding hands together until they could “act” better. (Michael)
