    Dear Family,I am so sad to hear this news. Steve will forever hold a special place in my heart. He and my brother, Jack Abercrombie, were dear friends through high school and beyond, and I remember their shenanigans and laughter. When my brother was dying, Steve sat by his side, held him, kissed him, and told him how much he loved him with a deep sense of compassion, tenderness, and friendship. It was a beautiful reflection of the caring human being he is. I am so sorry for your loss, send love and strength, and hope you find comfort in all of the beautiful memories you share.

    To Stuart and family. I have no words to express how much I feel for your loss. I know he will be missed. I have no doubt he was a kind and good man by the conversations Stuart and I had. May the wonderful and sweet memories help to heal your heart and get you to a place of better. I am praying for your family and know you will be fine because you are in the hands of those that care.
