Friday, May 12, 2017Dear Jean and Family, You and your family have been on all of our minds and in our prayers, especially here at Valley View Elementary School in Bountiful, Utah. We never met your son in person, but after learning and studying his life for our school’s musical, Good as Gold, we all feel like we know him and love him. We hope you find peace and comfort through the family and friends close to you and from all of us here in Bountiful. We know that peace can come. I know we’ve never met, but I’m a mom and my heart is heavy for your loss. Steven was an inspiration to so many. I wish you could have seen the look on the children’s faces who played Steven in the musical, when we presented them the signed hats you sent us. Those boys, as well as our entire cast, will have a tender spot in their heart for Steven. As a school we feel honored to have shared his story before his passing. We hope this brings comfort to you as well that his story didn’t end on the bobsled track, but it lives on in the hearts of hundreds of elementary school aged children and their families. My favorite song from the musical was sung between you and Steven as his eyes were dimming from the Keratoconus. The song was called “Heaven keep the lights on.” I’ve attached the lyrics and stage direction from the script below. I know that Heaven kept the lights on for Steven and that he is in his Heavenly Father’s loving arms and that his Heavenly Father was there for him that night, just as He is there for you now. You are not alone, Heaven’s lights are on for you and we love you! Let’s please keep in touch. We love you so much! Sincerely, Tiffany Smith Producer & Writer of Good as Gold ps - Please let us know about the funeral arrangements. Many students and families have expressed interest in sending flowers and cards. _______ (Mother and son hug and gesture goodbye. After shutting the door, Steve stands facing audience just outside his home. His mother faces audience still inside home.) SONG: HEAVEN KEEP THE LIGHTS ON Steve’s Mother: Heaven keep the lights on for my son. I just can't believe his work is done. Heaven keep the lights on Show me where the light's gone. Can't you spare a little light And help my only son tonight? Steve: Heaven keep the lights on one more night. Tell me what I'm asking for is right. Heaven, can you be here? Can you make my way clear? Will you light the path ahead or keep me in the dark instead? Both: Heaven keep the lights on.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017To win an Olympic medal is outstanding. To win the hearts of sport fans is a gift. Steve always made sure you were right at home, rather in conversation, on the run, cheering as a by stander. The news reached Florida as it did all over the world and every mouth proclaimed, GONE TO YOUNG.......Until we meet again.
