    To Judi and to all of Steve’s family: Sending you my heartfelt condolences on your loss. Steve was such a vibrant and friendly soul. We often referred to him as our very own “energizer bunny” in all the years he worked with us at the Cary Library. -Liz

    Judi-Phyllis and I were saddened to hear of Steve’s passing. Phyllis always talked about him when they worked together…a real go-getter and outgoing guy. I will miss our secret rendezvous with both of you guys at the various supermarkets around town. Made my day to run into you bargain hunters….just like me. We will be thinking of you and remembering all the fun times.
