My heart is so heavy right now to hear of the passing of Steve. I was Steve's secretary at Caesars for 14 years. He was the best guy, boss, and friend anyone could ever have. Even though we did not work together anymore every holiday he would send me a text , even for my birthday and I would text him for his birthday. My sincere condolences to his family, and especially Stephanie. So sad right now.
