Please accept our condolences on the passing of Steve. My family lived just next door to the Jones and we spent many hours together as children. Steve suffered with many health problems in his later years which must have been a huge challenge. May memories of happier times be of comfort to your family at this difficult time.

This is Bonnie & Wayne Andrews. Stephen Was Wayne's twin. You had shared in the obituary that Wayne's name was Chuck McCord. I wish you, the funeral home, or someone would have tried to let us know. We are in Mississippi and someone should have known that. We wish the other family members our condolences as well. Is there any way to change Wayne's name in the obituary. Other people may be confused about who Chuck McCord is. Thank you.

Our life paths crossed as I drove Steve to many doctor appointments and the wound center. We enjoyed conversations of past TV westerns like "Rawhide", or "The Bounty Hunter" or "Rifleman". We would also shared grand kid stories since I have six and Steve was definitely attached to his grandson. The last time we spoke he was looking forward to the surgery and optimistic that it might relieve some of the health issues he suffered. We were out of town for a couple of months and when we returned I tried calling but with no success. We were saddened to hear of his passing but rejoice that our lifelines crossed and enriched each life.
