He was my best friend. I haven't gone more than an hour or two without crying since hearing about it.
I loved that man. He was honest, and he was passionate.
I met him at work in 2004, and by the time I moved to college in 2007, he was practically living with me. I remember him being the last to say goodbye as I left philadelphia. I remember him as the best man at my wedding. I remember him at the best of times and worst. He was the first person I'd call for anything and would call me consigliere in response. We were born 6 days apart in the same hospital and I thought we would go out together.... I'm still hoping it's a bad dream.
I miss him so much.

Steve man where do I begin... if it wasn't for Steve I wouldn't be the man I am today... Steve was the only one who would keep pushing me to keep going with my goal to get into septa. Steve was an older brother to me and we would always talk about ways to make money, work and sports. This one hurts me bad as I always would look forward to the phone calls of me calling him and him answering with his famous My man BP Steve thank you for giving me my career and my new lease on life I promise you I will continue to make you proud and keep your legacy going. Much love my friend and please RIP.
