I'm so sorry to hear about Steve's death. He was a great colleague and friend, and I will always remember our time working together. Vicki and the rest of the Nast family are in my heart and mind during this difficult time. I can't imagine how hard it must be to lose someone you love so much. I wish I had stayed in touch with you more over the years, but I want you to know that I care and respect you deeply.
