Steve, you were the very best person to share a meal with. You would surprise me with great restaurant finds that were always a delight and delicious. And the conversation was the BEST too!

Steve was a wonderful to work with, and became a true friend. Always a smile on his face and a great sense of humor. I'm so glad I was able to see him one last time last month, his smile and positivity was still there in spite of the challenges and pain he was facing. I will miss you Steve. See you on the other side,

Steve had the best personal way about him and the best smile! We had a tradition every May to sit at my lobby table and relax and chat. Frankly, it was always sunnier at the Don with him here and I will truly miss him. As a matter of fact, I'm privileged to have known him and his Julie. Julie, my deepest condolences, my friend.
