I introduced Steve to this site three years ago. Steve was a bridge player and a word puzzle maven.
He was also my best man, my proof-reader and had the best taste in wine!

He had been struggling in the last six months with cancer and steadily going downhill. The end is very close -- anyone who wants to include him in their thoughts should do so. Even though neither of us are religious people what harm can it do?

By the way I know how grateful he was to a couple of sploofus people who sent him letters (and in at least one case puzzles) to keep him occupied.

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes and thoughts.
Steve died last night; he was a good friend and a nice guy.

I'll be posting a couple of quizzes in the next few months that he had drafted questions for. I'll take the opportunity then to let you know a bit more about him then.

Barry, I am so sorry. At least he is not having to suffer anymore - sounds like he was in a lot of physical pain.

Sorry. I know how rotten I'd feel if one of my handful of close friends died.
