Marie and Celeste,
Erin was visiting me this weekend and told me about Stephen. We are very sorry for your loss. Sean-Michael still says Mrs. Fine was the best English teacher. I am glad that our daughters have stayed in touch over the years.
My heart goes out to you and your family.

I am sadden to hear the news of Steve's passing. It still seems like yesterday that we were two skinny kids sitting around his kitchen table. He was a good friend and a better man. We're all somewhat diminished by your loss. My sympathy and condolences.
