    We are incredibly sorry to hear of Mr. Bock’s passing. It seems just a short time ago that we were in their house for letting the kids learn more about painting and enjoy the beauty of the finished pictures 🙁 So sorry for your loss and keeping you all in our prayers …

    Tammie and I never had the privelege of meeting Steve but are sad to hear of his loss to the Bock family.
    Thoughts and prayers go out to the family for comfort and strength in a difficult time. We look forward to meeting Mrs. Bock, Amy and Donna and their families. We also celebrate knowing Steve’s faith and that sadness can turn to joy and gain in the Lord Jesus for all eternity. May God bless the Bock family.
