  9. Dear Morgan and Sean.

    I’m so very, very sorry for your loss. I’m pleased you were able to be with him a few weeks back while he was able to enjoy seeing you. He told me how much it meant to him. And I’m also happy that you were with him at this time of his departure.

    I want you to know, without any doubt, how much he loved you two. You were his pride and joy.

    Your father meant so very much to me. He was a dear friend and a wonderful mentor. I’ve missed him since he’s been in Ireland, and I will miss him now even more.

    I know you’ll honor his memory by being the very best people you can be, and by remembering and living out the many, many lessons and truths he shared with you both.

    God bless and keep you both.

    Your friend,
    Kevin Courtright

  17. Chantal and Morgan, thank you for sharing the service with us. Morgan, that was a beautiful tribute to your father,

    I will always be thankful for Stephen’s humor, mentorship, encouragement, and endless creativity. I am so glad to have had him in my life. I will miss his stories and hearing about how the local cats are doing.

    I am so, so sorry for your loss.

  18. The service was beautiful, although sad beyond words. Morgan, you gave a splendid eulogy. I had never seen a picture of you throughout the years I knew your Dad, and it was wonderful to see you. I was always asking him how you and Sean were doing and if you were making it through one natural disaster after another.

    I am very happy to be able to attend the service virtually. It meant a lot to me to “be” there.

    I wish peace for you, Sean, Chantal, and the entire family.

  25. Chantal, Morgan, and Sean,

    Please accept my belated condolences. I just found out this morning Stephen passed away on September 8th. I am shocked and numb. He was a special person to me. Our paths crossed at a critical time in my acting journey. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have had him as an acting coach, industry mentor, and friend. Earlier in the spring, he and I had spoken. I was at a point where I could resume my acting studies with him and was excited about it. I guess it was just not meant to be. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed but not forgotten by all who knew you.
