I was going through my friends list on Facebook today when I cam across Steve Bergerson. Some of our members may know him from the PPML. That's where I met him. I didn't know him that well but we did share stories and information. I had not heard from in in a while so I was just stopping by his page to see how he was doing. His Facebook page is still active with daily posts from his kids letting him know the love him and miss him dearly. I came to the realization that Steve had lost his battle with prostate cancer last year around August. He fought hard for four years...

May peace be with his entire family.
