Cindy and family, We are sending our warmest thoughts and deepest sympathy to you, Steven, Kimberly and their families in this really difficult time. Steve was a consummate port professional, had great acumen and a knack for making things happen. He had a tremendous impact on the Port of Galveston and, in turn, the city as a result of his efforts in building the cruise business here. You and Steve were personally impacted and went through a lot with Hurricane Ike and Steve's perseverance in spite of that made a difference in the recovery following that event. Steve taught me a lot about the port industry and he was held in esteem by the Port's staff. I have some really fond memories of times we spent together during travel for the Port over the years we were colleagues and of some adventures in particular. Steve forged through his illness with optimism, dignity and grace and never lost his focus on his goals, as he always did. I know he will be greatly missed. He will not be forgotten here!
