"Just learned of your loss today. Words cannot express the sadness and sorrow I felt upon hearing the news. The world has lost one of it's finest human beings that lived here. He and I always talked about our kids, grand kids, fishing and our numerous diets. He was my doctor but the visits always felt like a visit with family instead of a doctor. I hope the family will find peace and comfort and know that they all were very much loved by Dr. Steve. He always beamed with pride when he spoke of them. Dr. Steve you will be greatly missed and will always hold a place in my heart."
"I am so very sorry for your loss. He will be greatly missed."
"Diana and Audra,
I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that you and your family will find peace and closure during this difficult time. With love and deepest sympathy,
"You have been wonderful neighbors to us. We will miss Steve and his helpful spirit. We are praying for all of you.
The Johnson Family"
I am shocked and saddened to learn from the hospital's emailing of Steve's passing. My condolences in your loss. He was always a delight to work with, calm and compassionate, and ready to take on any issue or task whether routine or urgent. Patients were greatly helped by their contact with Steve and often preferred to see him over the docs when given the choice. I am praying your family's transition will not be overly difficult and memories of Steve will be a comforting and frequent help."
"Diana and Audra,
I am very sorry about your loss. I wish you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you at this time. With deepest sympathy, Ashley Lewis"
