Dear Sosebee family, I want to send out our condoleances. It is a great loss. I have known Steve for at least 25 years. Always when I was visiting the US I was always having a good talk with Steve. Also Steve was at our company in The Netherlands several and we always enjoyed having him over. With Steve Foodmate is loosing a great industry expert with a lot of dedication for the industry and for the company. We will all miss Steve and we are happy to have known a great man like Steve. Rest in piece Steve. David Hazenbroek (Foodmate The Netherlands)
