Stephen Hampton's Memorial Service

Stephen's service today was marvelous. The place was packed with family and friends. Pastor Marty Kruse did an awesome job leading the service. It was filled with tremendous memories and the honoring of Stephen for the excellent young man he will forever be.

I was unexpectedly blessed to be standing in front of a door at the rear of the auditorium just moments after the service started when the Hampton family entered. It was my first occasion to see Leon & Susan personally, and I was deeply honored to be able to hug them as they walked into what must have been an experience both peace-filled and excruciating at the same time. They are just an incredible couple and family.

I also wanted to post that Leon has started a Memorial Blog for Stephen, and direct you there to leave comments and condolences. Click here to get there.

Memorial Service for Stephen Hampton

Just got word today that the Memorial Service for Stephen Hampton will be held on Saturday, July 14 at 2:00 pm at Discovery Church in Simi Valley.

Having just graduated from Wheaton College in May, Stephen was on an adventurous journey in Germany for a language school. On June 17, he was killed in a tragic accident. For more on Stephen, click here. Feel free to leave memorial comments there if you would like.
