My condolences to the family. Coop's laughter horn and wave as he flew by the front desk will be missed. I'm glad to have had the pleasure of meeting and knowing such a kind man.

Patricia and Family, I am so very sorry to hear about Steve. We had become friends several years ago. He was so proud of his kids. Over dinner one evening, he told me that all his kids had gone on to college and he was beaming. May God comfort you and your family in the days ahead. RIP my friend.
