    I knew Sterling from playing Poker at Eagle Pass. He was a truly fine young man with impeccable character. He impressed me with his kindness and respectful attitude. Always cheerful and a pleasure to have known. God took him too soon from our mortal perspective. But be assured Sterling touched many lives during his life. I know he touched mine My most heartfelt condolence goes out to his family. Speaking for the many poker players that were fortunate to know Sterling we know that, as he was in life and is now in Heaven, he remains....ALLIN May God Bless.
