WOW! My mouth fell open and I got goose bumps when I saw the new "FOUND SAFE" in the thread title. What a super ending to this story. It has been wonderful seeing the response for the DPC community. Just when you're getting tired of all the griping, something like this happens and reminds you why you've been here so long.

Super job to all the "key players" in finding Steve. Now there is no doubt that your efforts were worth while. If it wasn't for all the posters and hard work, he would still be 'missing'.

Steve, I don't know you but this news made my day! Glad you are safe. I imagine your reaction to the "search" both here and offline will be overwhelming for you but we look forward to you posting again...especially those damn pictures! :-)

And so, I can finally put this to use. I've had it since the first false alarm.

W00t!

Edit: I will update the Phoenix Tap Billiards forum. If others could start doing the same that would be great.

I'm just one of the new "peas" on board . . . but I've read each and every post in this 50-some page thread over the past few days. I've anguished right along with you guys, even though I don't know Steve at all. And I just let out a huge WHOOP and a round of applause when I read tonite's update! My husband walked into the computer room, wondering why I was crying!!

As a part of a tightknit online community, myself, I understand the power of "strangers". And you guys are an impressive bunch. Kudos to everyone for their unwavering efforts!

Glad you're okay, Steve!!

Welcome back Steve. It warms my heart to know that you are safe, and to see the way that this community (DPC) rallied to help and responded to the good news of your safe return.

Peace E.L.

Excellent news. I too have been watching this thread everyday and am so glad that Steve is safe! A big, huge "job well done" to those that put time and energy into finding Steve, posting the flyers, going out looking for him, etc. It warms the heart.

WooooooHOOoooooo!!!

Welcome back Steve, hope you're doing well.

I am yet another person who doesnít know Steve. Iíve been seeing his friends, people I am just getting to know, tormented and struggling as they tried to help his family. I have seen the best of people. My greatest respect to you all and welcome back Steve.

Ditto for me, another silent watcher not wanting to dilute the efforts of those posting helpful comments towards finding Steve. Definitely good to hear and a relief to know that all's well that ends well.

This is such GREAT news! :)


Couldnt say it better myself, Yay!!!

What a great day. I feel about 150 pounds lighter.

Thank you so much everyone for your thoughts, concern, prayers and help! This has been truly amazing, and to put a happy ending on it...

And I assure you Steve will be reading this whole thread tonight! I have to go give him that kick!

Welcome home Steve! Hearing you were safe was a huge relief and even brought tears to my eyes.

Sitting here in tears. Thank You Lord!!

This has had a special meaning to me. My sister lives in Mesa and after I checked the addresses of both, it seems that they lived a mere 1.8 miles apart!! How ironic!
I am still beaming after hearing the great news!
I hope that after all of this, everyone will start to heal and be extra careful with folks feelings.
You never know how powerful your words can be. Good or bad.

Glad to have you back, Steve. You've been on my thoughts off and on for the past few weeks now, I was worried about you. What a relief! Welcome home!

Welcome back Steve! Hope you are well.

Did you mention that we expect pictures? :-)

Seriously, though, many thanks to Daryl, Tina, and all the folks "on the ground". You done REAL good.

I have had my iternet down for all day today.

So when I loaded the page and didn't see the box on the main page saying he was missing, I thought "this is either amazingly good news, or amazingly bad news."

I am so thrilled it was not the latter.

Steve, you are in so much trouble! :P

I'm glad you were found safe.
08/11/2006 11:12:58 PM · #1273
That's good news! Glad all is well!
08/11/2006 11:15:04 PM · #1274

08/11/2006 11:15:59 PM · #1275
What fantastic news to wake up to!!! I'm sure I'm not the only one with tears in their eyes:)

Can we now have a massive DPC GTG in Mesa, Arizona?:))
