To Steve's Family,

A  part of me is missing today.  Steve, had a profound impression and influence on my life, the lives of my wife Laurie, kids Donny, Patrick and Brooke.  We are all better people because of you, my best friend Steve.  We spent countless hours togther talking about everything imagineable.  You are the undisputed King of Movies.  My tears and sorrow are selfish on my part.  You are in the presence of the Lord Jesus, I'm left here without my friend and I simply will miss you every day.  Love Don

So sorry to hear about Steve's passing.Steve was a patient of our office, he was such a nice guy. I knew him for many years but every time he came in he would ask me what my name was, I knew at his next appointment he would ask the same question. He was so funny! My condolences to the family.
