I was glad to hear that Steve may have had a more peaceful and happy life in his final 10 years and that he died surrounded with love.

I have to know: Is Paige Pentecost the same person we knew in Washington, D.C.? Was she once partner to Nicholas Hecht and mother of Mistral? If so, please let me know at :

If so, there's one hell of a story there!
