My friend, "NDSteve"
I got word from another member that NDSteve recently passed away. I think he became seriously ill in mid-May.
He and I shared some teams, competed with one another, co-admined some teams. I knew he had health problems, but I did not ask.
At chess, he was a maniac - sometimes playing over 500 games at a time. I think maybe it kept him alive a little longer. He was quite a strong player (>1900) when he took his time.
I am going to miss him. RIP, my friend. Remember him in your prayers.
