I had the privilege of meeting Steven about a year ago. He just sorta appeared in my life the way some people do. And it was immediately clear that my life was going to be the better for it.
We worked together, and he was brilliant, but the work turned into a friendship that I'll always value. I offer my sincere condolences to his family and friends. I am also sad for the people who never had the chance to meet Steven. They'll never know what they missed.
For me, I'll miss his laugh, his kindness, and his company.
Our loss is huge, but our memories are full.

Heartfelt condolences to Steven's family. We were great theater buddies from High School and stayed friends for years after. I am sure Steve will always be remembered making people laugh and lightening up any room he walked into. We did several shows together, both in and out of school. One of my fav's was him in Ain't Misbehavin'. I feel blessed that his wonderful, infectious spirit entered my life and clearly he touched so many others too. I will be praying for all friends and family of Steve's to get through this tough time. I hope its comforting to know how much he was loved.

Yesterday when I was told about Stevens passing I was absolutely heartbroken , and felt sick the entire day . my love and my prayers go out to Steven's family. Steven was my best friend in high school , I would not have gotten through high school without him he made me laugh like nobody else has been able to since that is truly a gift. Although we did not see each other for the last 10 years we kept in touch on birthdays . because of steven he forced me to get on a plane and go to Europe and he pushed me to get out of my comfort zone I'm sure he was a wonderful teacher . he took me to see many wonderful plays and we had a great time traveling through Germany and in London. Some of the best moments of my life we're is shared with Steven he truly enriched my life he was truly one of a kind a definite blessing to this planet. I will never forget his kindness and his humor . his memory Will Go On, and I am sure that he is reunited with his father who I never forgot who was also that special kind of person like Steven was Unforgettable. I wish you all so much love there are no words my prayers are with you.

Steve was a truly wonderful person; one who lit up the room just by his presence. He was a joy to be around. I really enjoyed learning the finer points of screenwriting from him. His classes at NYC Screenwriter was always informative and fun. I was also lucky to call him a friend! I am sure that he is in heaven writing the next heavenly blockbuster; maybe "Chariot of the God" or "Highway to Heaven" the musical. Steven will surely be missed.
My sincerest condolences to Steven's loved ones and friends. May they find solace in knowing that Steven touched many people and we are better by knowing him.
May God bless his soul. Rest in Peace my friend!
