Re: I'm afraid I bring sad news
I came on the scene in March of 2003 and had the pleasure of getting know Steve early on. We, too, shared lengthy telcons, as did Sam, through the night and in the wee hours of the morning covering many subjects, including the proverbial kitchen sink. These will be some of the fondest memories that will keep him alive in my mind.
There is so much more, as the others said, but my mind is slow to work through the deep shock and sadness of these times.
