  2. Earl,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve known Steve since we were at COM/UHCL together.
    He was very talented and had a wicked sense of humor. I will never forget he took me to see a young singer I had never heard of in what used to be an old movie theater in Houston. He said one day she will be famous and we can say we met her when she was a nobody. The singer was gracious and fun. We sat close because the theater was small. She spoke to us like we were old friends…that singer turned out to be Melissa Etherage. He was as so right about her popularity. Later, we had a similar adventure with Traci Chapman. Not sure where he found their music but I was so grateful he introduced me to both of them.
    May he rest in peace. Sending all of his family my thoughts and prayers. RIP Steve!

    • Thank you Karen for those wonderful words. That was definitely Steve. He was always seeking out new and exciting talent. He has opened my eyes and ears to entertainers that I would not have even noticed. Again, thank you so much.

Please remember these words of encouragement from the Bible: “ Jesus plainly told her: “I am the resurrection and the life.
