  1. I regret not being at the memorial service today. However my heart felt sympathy and condolences are with the family. I knew Steve when we worked at the city of Minneapolis. I loved him dearly, he was a wonderful man and a dear dear friend. Make God-bless all of you with the best of memories and a laugh or smile He would have liked that.
