Farewell My Friend: May the Force Be With You !

I'm actually kinda shocked and sad at reading the Stev is leaving us. I had the honor of meeting Steve twice in the last 2 years and I have to say never in my time have I met a man that so embodied the love of Star Wars. His is a voice that will be missed. farewell Steve. The Force will be with you....Always.
