Not sure what to say?

Steve was just good I knew him briefly at MU. He escorted me across a busy street, even when it was out of his way : what a gentleman! I wish I had known sooner. Love to all, especially his beloved wife. His goodness will continue to bless this world.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Steve's death and send my sympathy to April and his family. I met Steve while we both were working on the student newspaper at Mizzou. When I later became the editor he was most supportive. Steve somehow instinctively knew the challenges I was facing as a female who was not expected to get the job. I was always grateful for that and for his love of our business of journalism.

Dear April: Receive my dearest condolences for Steve's death. I'm sorry to write you so late. I just found out today thanks to Carlos, our friend of Colombia. I remember with great affection and sympathy your trip to Madrid 20 years ago. I wish you the best and gradually you will overcome this loss

Steve was more than a worker to me. I knew him from boyhood; however, contact was much more infrequent as an adult due to the distances between us. We communicated periodically, including recent messages about his illness. I was shocked to learn of his death through LinkedIn. My condolences to April and other family members.

I just heard about Steve's passing and am so very sad. He was a wonderful, always fun and supportive business friend from Institutional Investor days. A terrible loss. My condolences to you, April, and family.

A great source of knowledge. I share everyone's loss. He will be missed.

Dear April, It hit me like a huge rock. My dearest Condolences. I can feel the pain with you. Best Wishes.

April, I was so sad to learn of Steve's passing. Steve was always so supportive when we worked together at EPI. I learned a lot from him. But what I remember most is that he was always smiling and so much fun to work with. His "review" of the Our Town skit that opened the conferences was typical Steve -- witty, creative and fun! I know he will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you now.
