    My sincerest and heartfelt condolences to the Plata family. Steve was a good friend in high school and afterwards. He always looked after me like a big brother when I saw him at functions, parties and clubs. We had so many great laughs and got to know him well. Always remember you. RIP IN PEACE “50”. Love ya big guy.

    Rev. 21:3, 4
    With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
