Steve zero'd in on you. Intense eyes and curiosity. I always felt appreciated and playful in his presence. After he took up surfing and became friends with my partner Michael Speraw, every time he saw me he'd say, "How's your ol' man?" I mean like EVERY TIME. It was fu...

We almost opened a cafe together once. You were the coffee guy, I was the dessert lady. I loved your coffee and your kindness. So sad your Journey is over. We were good at what we loved Steve. Hugs from Unni.
