His Influence by Ryan Herley

I knew Steven; many times in my teens I had the opportunity to "hang out" with him at Evan's home in Lancaster.

I looked up to Steven; he made be believe that I could be a better man, that I could excel at anything I put my whole effort towards, and that through perseverance and honest work, I could achieve any goal.

It was because of Steven that I enlisted into the US Army immediately following my 17th birthday; I tried to be like him, though I failed in my attempt.

Steven Redd was my friend, and I am proud to have known him. The world is a poorer place; we have been robbed of a good man; an honest man; a decent and caring and kind man.

I pray that the Lord will bless and keep him; that he will hold him at His bosom and make his countenance to shine upon him. I pray that Steven will receive his just rewards for his selfless service, and that the Lord will say to him "Have rest, my good and faithful servant; in you I am well pleased."

I will miss you and I will count myself to be wealthy for having had you as my friend.

Essayons, my Brother.
