Stephen and Linda’s 20-year-old daughter, Samantha, went to Heaven in February of 2011. She took her life following a long battle with Borderline Personality Disorder. After Sam’s death, they found that their meager faith was not nearly enough to help them deal with this devastating loss. God led them to a much deeper faith, ultimately peace, and finally joy. They retired from business in 2016 and spend their time in ministry, helping other bereaved parents and enjoying their grandchildren.
