However, Moore has turned her mourning into a mission.
"If I can give someone information about PTSD that could prevent Steven's tragedy happening to another military family then his passing will not be in vain," Moore said. "That's why we're here today."
Cowboys and spectators came from Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kansas and Illinois for the roping event to remember Steven and raise money for other soldiers like him.
Moore said the event will not only help Wounded Warriors in northeast Arkansas.
"You are giving back to families of fallen soldiers everywhere," Moore said.
Moore said the community's involvement would also help to mend a broken heart.
