Not sure what to say?

I can hardly believe it's been 5 years since Steve's untimely passing. I know the hurt never really goes away; it will always be a part of our lives for his family and those who knew him. Bless you, LaVerne, Dan, and Greg, and may memories of happier times sustain us all.

I just heard of Steve's passing. So sad. I had not seen Steve in the longest time and we recently became facebook friends. I had thought it would be nice to see each other again. He was my very first boyfriend. Used to wait on the curb for the cute guy to drive his olive green car by my house. My heart is heavy. My prayers to his family.
RIP Steve.

I am so sorry to learn of Steve's passing. My deepest condolences. I became friends with Steve a few years ago as we would share stories of Horse Racing, Football, and other assorted topics at Chuck's in Fontana. He was someone you liked being around all the time. He will be missed and may he rest in piece. JIM LAPETINA

Shocked and saddened to hear of this loss. I spent many times talking horses and politics with Steve over the years at Arlington ,, every man's death diminish's us all,,especially this one.

My heart goes out to you. Steve left us all way too early. A great man with a huge heart. He was loved and adored by many.

Glad i had the opportunity to meet Steve a few times at Arlington Park throughout the Chicago summers, he was a great guy. I'm sorry for your loss.

I am so very sorry to hear of Steve's passing. He was a god man.

Dearest Laverne,
