Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Steven Miller who was born in Joplin, Missouri on April 27, 1988 and passed away on February 11, 2006 at the age of 17. During these brief years Steven touched many lives with his laugh, his smile, and his love. He will be deeply missed forever by all who knew and loved him. 


"He was, despite the few years of his life, no brief candle.
He was a Splendid Torch, vital, charismatic, magnetic, attractive.
Full of the attributes that all of us wish we had in greater abundance"!
By: Bob Buford

STEVEN When I Lost You, I Lost My Mind! I couldn't concentrate, I couldn't think about anything but you.Now I can function better but there are still times when I find myself unable to remember much of my life for those first several months after your death. When I Lost You I Lost My Heart! It broke into a million tiny pieces, scattered all over the many places that we had been together. Now most of my heart is back but there are many pieces that are cracked, broken and gone forever. My Heart will never be totally whole again. When I Lost You I Lost My Joy! It was so difficult to smile, to see any good in even the smallest of things. Now I feel Joy again, just not as deeply as I did for the 17 years that you were here with me. When I Lost You I Lost My Hope! It seemed that I would never have anything good to look forward to again in my life! Now I do have hope for the future, but with the stark realization that no matter what may happen, I will not have you to share it with. When I Lost You I Lost My Voice! I had nothing to say, other than to call your name and ask God to end my pain and suffering. Now I have my voice back, and I use it to thank God for the 17 years that I did have you with me. Steven, these past 10 years have not been easy without you. You were the son that I was so proud of. You were the friend that I talked to and did things with. You loved the things that I loved and listened to the music that I like to listen to. You were the best person that I have ever had the privilege of knowing! I still Love You and Miss You every single day of my life! My one consolation is that I know some day we will be together again! All My Love! Dad

(Don't Wake Me)

I went to bed I was thinking about You
I ain't the same since I'm living without You
All the memories are getting colder
All the things that I wanna do over

I went to bed I was thinking about You
I wanna talk and laugh like we used to
When I see You in my dreams at night
It's so real but it's in my mind

And now I guess this is as good as it gets

Don't wake me 'cause I don't wanna leave this dream
Don't wake me 'cause I never seem to stay asleep enough
When it's you I'm dreaming of I don't wanna wake up

Don't wake me we're together just You and me
Don't wake me 'cause we're happy like we used to be
I know I've gotta let You go but I don't wanna be alone

These dreams of You keep on growing stronger
It ain't a lot but it's all I have
Nothing to do but keep sleeping longer
Don't wanna stop 'cause I want You back

Don't wake me 'cause I don't wanna leave this dream
Don't wake me 'cause I never seem to stay asleep enough
When it's you I'm dreaming of I don't wanna wake up

Don't wake me we're together just You and me
Don't wake me 'cause we're happy like we used to be
I know I've gotta let You go but I don't wanna be alone

I went to bed I was thinking about You
'Cause I don't wanna leave this dream
It ain't the same since I'm living without You
'Cause I never seem to stay asleep

I know I've gotta let You go but I don't wanna wake up

THANKS TO THE GUYS OF GROVE STREET FOR THE AWESOME BACKGROUND MUSIC ON THIS MEMORIAL SITE!

Steven was a remarkable young man of many talents and attributes, but it was his strong faith in God and his deep love for those around him that really marked who he was. Steven loved everyone and he did not care what your name was, what color of skin you had, or how much money was in your bank account. He respected each person for who they were and did not try to be who he wasn't. His bright smile, contagious laugh and cheerful attitude were a powerful ministry to those whom he came in contact with. While he may be gone in body his undying spirit lives on through each and every person that knew him. The world would truly be a better place if we could all see each other through Steven's eyes!





It comes in like a flood, Shoves off just the same,
Never a warning, With no one to blame.
And not even time can offer a remedy.
Like a knife through my heart, A kiss to my face,
Is your memory!
(lyrics by Jonah 33)

 




GO BUFFS!



Anyone who was around Steven knew of his intense love for the CU Buffaloes Football Team, as well as an equally intense dislike for the University of Nebraska. 

                                                                                                                  


Steven's favorite Buff over the past few years was #27 Brian Iwuh. His sideline-to-sideline play and hard hitting, was an inspiration to Steven. Brian Iwuh started his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. After playing for 6 years he retired from the NFL.

                                                                                    

     

Steven also loved the Denver Broncos. He was a big fan of Shannon Sharp and Champ Bailey. Congratulations to Shannon Sharp for making it into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame!! I know Steven has a big smile on his face! Check the slide show and main photo album for pictures of Steve at Bronco Headquarters!





Of course Steven's other favorite football team is his beloved La Junta Tigers! He was proud to walk on the field dressed in the black and orange and represent his home town and school. His fellow teammates were very important to him as were the Tiger coaches.




OTHER INTERESTS
Steven had many other interests besides football. He loved to swim and being a lifeguard at the La Junta pool made him very proud.


Steven also loved music. His tastes were varied but the one thing that it always had was a good beat. Click on the Audio & Video link to check out some of his favorite toons. If any of you know of a particular song he was very fond of please drop me a line and let me know.


Dodge Ram trucks were also a love of Steven's as well as motorcycles and dirt bikes. Check in the photo album section for some pics of those.

Steven also loved animals, especially dogs. Check back soon for some pictures of some of the animals that Steven loved and cherished.
