    Don't cry for me.
    I will be okay.
    Heaven is my home now, and this is where I'll stay.
    Don't cry for me.
    I'm where I belong.
    I want you to be happy and try to stay strong.
    Don't cry for me.
    It was just my time,
    but I will see you someday on the other side.
    Don't cry for me.
    I am not alone.
    The angels are with me to welcome me home.
    Don't cry for me, for I have no fear.
    All my pain is gone, and Jesus took my tears.
    Don't cry for me.
    This is not the end.
    I'll be waiting here for you when we meet again.

      On Sunday June 27, 2022 Steven passed away.
      Born in 1989, Steven wrestled with and conquered some of his demons however the road to recovery is rarely easy or without fail. His life seemed more balanced, easier, more routine. In the last year Steven had become employed as a Correctional Officer in Missouri and became engaged to a special lady he was very excited to marry in September. They had created a home together in Missouri.
      He was often animated or joked about life, his past, our family antics, sibling shenanigans and about his future. Included in every conversation was always talk about his dog and about coming home when he could, to see all of us, to listen to music together and to eat my cooking.
      Steven has two daughters in Washington and a son in Missouri whom he loved very much. There are so many stories, qualities and characteristics that his siblings share with him and now will carry for him - they are heart broken. Steven was 33 years old and a member of the Seneca-Cayuga & Osage Tribes and of the Eagle Clan.
      A celebration of his life will be held this summer.
      Parents Elizabeth and Jake Bighorse
