My heart goes out to Pam and the kids. Steve was an exceptional person. Being scientists ourselves, we really appreciated his perennial curiosity and the way he always kept up with innovations in his field. He was so curious about everything that he often asked interesting questions when our mouths were full of cotton and tubes and all we could do was grunt. But as a patient I most appreciated his kindness and patience with my nervousness about dental work. He and Pam made things so pleasant and comfortable that I kept going to him during the 11 years we lived in New York. He even came in on a holiday when I had a dental emergency. And his gardening around the office - so lovely. He was such a vital person who adored his family - I am so sorry for this tremendous loss.

Dr. Austin was always so kind. He worked on my whole family since I was a teen; and I am so sad to hear of his passing, My mom is his neighbor and if she was more able bodied I know she would stop by the house to leave flowers. I wish I could make it to the service, but am up in the Bay Area now. Big love to Pam and his children. You are in my prayers.

My deepest condolences to Pam and family. Steve was a wonderful man, husband, dad, and dentist. I would not have my beloved standard poodle Valjean without the knowledge Steve gave me about the Donchada breeders.

Dear Pam, Lauren and Alex,
I was just stunned to hear about Steve’s
passing. My heart is aching for you. I do know the wonderful memories will eventually bring you much joy.
Steve was my first boss when I moved to Carmel Valley from Canada. I remember him being so excited for me when I bought
a new car and rushing out of his office to let me show it off. He made my day. I have fond memories of fun times there.
I am a phone call away (831-917-6686) if I can do anything for you.

To Pam and Family, Joe and I were so sorry and shocked to hear of Steve's death. We started to see him as a dentist, when your daughter was in the office in a little baby seat. How time passes. We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Dr. Austin believed in me, even when I did not. It meant a lot to me. He taught me so many things over the years, even when I tried his patience. I miss you.

Dearest Pam, Alex and Lauren:
I am so sorry. Words escape me in the shock of your husband/father's passing.. He was so dedicated to all of you - and I am eternally grateful to him for this. I pray that blessings shower upon his soul from here to eternity. And, of course, I pray for all of you during this time of grief and loss.

The mystic, Kahlil Gibran, wrote about "the hour of separation" :
"And the treasure of your infinite depths would be revealed to your eyes." I feel in my soul that this is true for him now. And, each of you is more loved than you could ever know.

I want you to know that my heart embraces each of you and I am here for you always. I love you all.
