So it goes, as another season turns.
You decided that it was time to move on, and our hearts will yearn
Especially when Sunday rolls around and there is no knock on the door
Yet, our hears are lifted to know that you moved on to another tour,
Especially as we remember how we watched brawn
Waste away day by day and now you are gone.
We will meet again.
Steven, Gloria, Tiffany, Sharon and Steven
My thoughts and prayers are with Steve and the entire Segerstrom family.

To the Segerstrom Family:
Kenneth is in our thoughts and prayers. My parents, Jimmy and Beatrice Moore, were neighbors down the road in Isabella many years ago. Even though Ken moved away, we did see him once in awhile to say “hi” when he came back. He always remembered his roots, and he too will be remembered.
