TALBOT Steven Eric Margaret would like to express her sincere thanks to all cousins, friends, neighbours and others for the many cards, flowers, floral tributes and generous donations received for The Royal British Legion following the sudden passing of Steven. Thanks to the Rev'd. Susan Richardson for conducting a wonderful Church Service at St. Andrew's and at the Crematorium, to the Co-operative Funeral Directors and Wear Valley Crematorium for all their help, compassion, and professionalism they have shown at this sad time. Special thanks to the Simpson family who have all played a big part in Steven's life, to David for producing a wonderful booklet containing the Order of Service and the photographs of Steven and his 'mates', also to Alan for proudly carrying the football, to Paul the best of friends who stood with quiet dignity telling everyone how proud he was of having Steven as his lifelong friend, to John and Glynis who have always been there, to Susan and the staff of The Cross Keys for the friendships they formed with Steven. There are many more too numerous to mention who also had a great impact upon Steven. Thank you all for the love and friendship you have always given to Steven and myself. I am privileged and honored to call Steven my very Precious Son.
