Sarah, thank you for reaching out to me with the sad news of your father's passing. He meant so very much to me as the dearest of friends, confidant, mentor, and an example to emulate in our profession. He was always there for me during the low points. I will miss his sage advice and our many long conversations, much of which where he repeatedly expressed his immeasurable love for you and your family. Now we can take comfort knowing that he is reunited with your mother, the love of his life.

So sorry to hear of steve’s passing. We were friends in high school and he gave me my first flight. Never been scared of planes since after seeing him handle the plane. Always thought I would see him again but something always seemed to come up. Teaches that we should never take each other for granted. I will miss him on Facebook until we can meet again.
