So sad to find this on the web while surfing my mentor through the late seventies and eighties. Although having no contact for nearly 25 yrs or so, will never forget the time spent together helping Steve drive our company toward new levels during that intertwining time period. My heartfelt sympathy to Louise and the family I then new then. I will always give credit for teaching me our business, into which I even brought in my brother as well. God Bless Louise, and so many shared his love and affection. So happy to have one
