"To the Family of Stephen Sherman, I know this time of the year is not easy for. I send you my deepest condolences on your loss. I will never forget Stephen. I served with him and I was with him before and after. He was a great Soldier and fun guy to be around. We had alot of fun conversations. Most days he was my driver and he knew how to make me laugh to keep me alert during the long missions. There is a memorial located at the VFW memorial park in Beaverton Oregon and a Brick with Stephens name is is part of the memorial. I wanted others to know about one of my brothers in arms who gave the ultimate sacrifice preserving freedom and our way of life. He will always be remembered."

"Steve was my cousin, and the minute i found out that he was no longer with us, i was speachless. And it kills my because even though he was my cousin, i didn't know alot about him. We have a very big age difference therefore we didn't spend alot of time together! But that doesn't mean i will forget him! I loved him like a brother. When i did see him he was sweeter than candy to me! I love and miss him very much.

Love always,
