Susie, my office was next to Steve’s at Corrections. He would often talk to me about his family and how much all of you meant to him. He had such concern for you during your cancer treatment. He did have a wicked sense of humor, and often left me notes about my “parking” abilities. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Steve was one of the most important mentors I will could ever have. He taut me so much, I was always able to reach out to him for anything.
He will be missed but certainly NEVER FORGOTTEN.
To all his Family and Friend I send my heart felt condolence!
