Hi Amy and Kevin - I am very sorry to hear of Steve's passing. I have been calling on Steve off and on with various different positions / companies for a number of years. Steve was always full of great sense of humor. First he'd tell me a few things that were wrong in the world, but we'd always finish up with some things that were working well......and he'd never let me leave without giving me the raspberries about how great the Terriers were while I played for the Millionaires. I wish you all the best through this difficult time. Kindest regards, Gerald Kottke
