    I have been out of the country and just got this news. I must say that it is quite devastating. This man (who I only knew over the phone) was one of the ultra coolest humen beings I have ever known. He was ALWAYS nothing but great to me. He is the kind of person I would have done anything for. My heart and prayers go out to his family, co workers, and friends. He will be missed.

    Cheers Steve, thank you.
