  1. My deepest condolences to the Buffington family and friends for the loss of your loved one Steven. Very soon Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

  2. I will cherish the many memories growing up close friends. Those were some fun days. I could tell stories for days. I am thankful I had an opportunity to speak with Steve a couple of months ago. I am equally regretful for allowing us to grow apart the last few years and not taking the time to get together as we promised during our last conversation. Take care my friend hopefully our paths will cross again someday.

  3. I am so very sorry that Steve has passed. I hadn’t talked to him in years – but we had some good conversation last year when Chip passed. Hugs and prayers to the family.
