    Steve will always be remembered as a “One of a Kind”. No one entered a room or embraced the crowd quite like Steve. Be it his sense of “Style” or his quick wit and friendly, loving smile he belonged where ever it was he found himself. Maaike and the kids will always be in our hearts. So long Stevie. You are with God now.

    I am so very sorry for your tragic loss of Steve’s untimely passing. I have known Maaike since childhood, but never knew Steve. In reading all the posts and viewing all the pics, I see what an amazing person Steve was, a friend to so many and a devoted family man who was clearly so totally in love with his beautiful wife. Maaike, I am so so sorry for you and the kids, and I pray that your Faith will give you the strength to get through each day. I am so sorry for the whole family and the enormous loss for everyone who knew Steve. His passing has touched so many people and awakened us to be grateful and thankful for those around us, and for each day that God gives us. Hugs and prayers to all of you!

    Not a second goes by that I don’t think of you Maaike and what you are going through. Steve touched the lives of everyone he met. I will never forget him! He was one of the kindest, most generous men I have ever known. He always welcomed me with open arms and lifted me up when I was hurting, made me laugh when at times I didn’t think I could.
    How many times did he make it possible for me to come visit my dearest, best friend in the world, when I wouldn’t have been able too otherwise? Upon my arrival each time I would come visit, he would just give me that famous Steve smile and give me the biggest hug ever, making me feel as if it had only been a day since I had seen him even if it had been a year. Only one other person could make me feel that way, and that person is you Maaike. Steve truly was, is and will always be your soul mate! Coming to visit you will never be the same!!
    I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to be his friend! My heart breaks for you Maaike, and the kids. I will miss his laughter, his hugs, his jokes, his hats, the way he says eh and his teasing me for being a Texan!! He will be missed in more than a million ways!
    Maaike, I pray for you everyday, my dear sweet friend. I pray for you, the kids, and both of your families. I pray that our Lord Jesus Christ wraps his arms around you all and holds you tight! I pray that He gives you strength and the courage to make it through the tough road that follows. I love you all and know that you can call me anytime of any day and I am there for you!

    Maaike and kids, I am so sorry for you loss. Steve was my printer guy. I had the opportunity to go for lunch with Steve a couple of times and many conversations on the phone. He spoke very fondly of you Maaike and the kids. The last time I saw Steve he was wearing his red hat. So it must have been around Christmas because that was “the only time I can get away with it” he told me. He truly was one of a kind just like others have mentioned here. He will be missed for sure.
