Dear Maria,
So sorry to hear of the loss of our old friend Steve.  I will always remember him as the respected professional and all around good guy that he was; he will surely be missed.  Although taken from us too soon, I hope he found peace and joy in his retirement years.  Please accept my deepest condolences to you and the family and may God bless Steve’s eternal soul.

Steve Kurtis, former Eon Labs employee

Dear Maria,

My deepest sympathies on your loss, from me and all of your friends at Eon. 
I always found Steve to be a caring, altruistic, compassionate person who strived to do the best for people, and in that way, both of you were clearly alike, and hence, were great for one another.  I hope you can find strength in the love of those close to you in your time of need — always know there are many people in Laurelton who think fondly of you and are keeping you in prayer during this very difficult time.

Again, my condolences to you and your family.

Christopher Aupperlee
