Along with raising their family, Stephen and Lila enjoyed traveling and spending time at the family camp at Sunnyside Beach where the family would live during the summer months.

My deepest sympathy to all of you at this most difficult time.
They say that the heart grieves over what it has lost, but it's the soul that treasures all the precious memories it has kept. May those precious memories bring you comfort in the days to come.
