Steve, I miss you very much. I worked with Steve. He and I shared the same Birthday month. We would celebrate our birthdays together. He would bring a cheesecake for my birthday. He was easy to talk to, very reliable, and gives good advise. I still remember his red cheeks. He would clock in always at 6:29 or 6:30. I would tell Steve no wonder you have heart problems. He would just laugh and smile. He always was there for me. He is my friend, my adviser and my HERO. I miss you STEVE.
