The family of Steve Berends would like to thank all of our wonderful family, friends, neighbor and coworkers for their overwhelming love and support for our family at the time of Steve’s death and the difficult times following.
We thank you for the many beautiful cards, flowers, and gifts, and for the memorials, masses, and for food brought to our homes, the wake, and the funeral.
Thank you to Deacon Wes and Father Louis for helping with the service and for their visits. Also to Dean and Al Anderson and Pat Lyons for helping us work through all the details.
Special thanks to St. John’s Choir, Lacy, Marian, and Ashley for the beautiful music, and to the 4th Degree Knights for providing the Honor Guard for Steve. The mass was beautiful.
Thank you to the CCW for the wonderful food they provided and for the great job of serving.
We would also like to say “Thank You” to the communities of Glenwood City and Prairie Farm, as well as the surrounding areas for the generosity of the many community groups and businesses who have given so generously to help the family, and to the first responders who have such a tough job to do – you are truly appreciated. You are great examples of what a “community” should be.
And to the Glenwood City Class of 2001 – we always knew you were a great bunch of kids – you’ve become awesome adults. Thank you for being such good friends to Steve.
Thanks to the crew who came and worked on the house and garage and for the cutting and delivering of the firewood.
A huge “Thank You” to the organizers; those who donated their time, talents and gifts; and to those who attended the benefit in honor of Steve. It was a huge undertaking, and you all did a wonderful job.
Finally, we want to thank everyone for your kind words of comfort, many hugs, and your continued prayers. God Bless You All.
