Very Sad News

Steven lost his epic battle with leukemia today. He died around noon. Lisa was with him.

There will be a memorial service for Steven on Monday, September 22, at 11AM.

New World United Methodist Church
2201 North Davis Drive
Arlington, Texas 76102

Lisa asked that in lieu of flowers, since there is no funeral, donations may be made in Steven's name to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society North Texas Chapter, (8111 LBJ Freeway Suite 425, Dallas, TX 75251, 972-239-0959) or to:

Rutledge Childrens Education Fund
Chase Bank
755 W. Lamar Blvd.
Arlington, TX 76012
(or directly to Lisa)

Steven asked me to keep his website and blog up for a while. He hopes it can do some good for other people going through what he did. So stay tuned. I think there will be a series of family photos and little stories. If you have some good ones of either, just send them on. Or just share your impressions of Steven.
