Condolence & Memory Journal

I just learned of Stephen's passing today. I'm praying for his family, especially for his Mom. He had such wonderful artistic talent and seemed to have many excellent things going for him. He left us way too soon. You left your mark and impression on the world, Stephen. God bless and rest your soul!

Stephen~ your artistic and musical brilliance were evident, but I will always most remember you for your abiding sensitivity and luster, your warm humor and humanity. You are profoundly missed. This world feels less vibrant with you in it. Love and healing to Stephen's family, who I know he adored deeply. Pax Vobiscum from California

Stephen will always be an inspiration to me. I will always remember his humanity, his complexity, his fearless passion to pursue truth in the deepest darkest depths in his astoundingly breathtaking art. He is an enigma, a genius, in a league of his own.

I send my condolences to all his loved ones. It is a great loss. His contribution to this world was massive.

Steve was one of those people you meet when you are a young kid, become good friends and no matter how much time goes by in between seeing one another it feels like only seconds have passed. When I received word of his passing I prayed for him and his family. Then I cried. We mourn and we heal but we never forget how our friends impacted our lives. Like my dear friend Mike said in a previous posting, it will be hard to look at the tattoos Steve tattooed on me however they as most tattoos are a reminder of that place in time.

Love you brother!!!

Kasner will always be remembered for his unique vision that he was able to allow all of us have a glimpse of. He gave me my first tattoo in his mom's basement way back in '94. I'll never be able to look at all the tattoo's he put on me, and not miss him. Godspeed Stephen.
