Steve Pickens – RIP

November 10, 2009

If you’ve checked out the site recently, you’ve probably noticed there hasn’t been much activity in the last month or so.  Our good friend and the co-founder of www.BeHeardNotHerded.com, Steve Pickens died unexpectedly on September 25, 2009.  He is survived by his wife and two adult children.

 Steve was 57 years young and appeared to be in good health.  We still don’t know exactly what happened, but he probably had some kind of heart attack.  Steve was a motivating force behind this website.  His creativity, intellect, hard work and dedication were assets that will be sorely missed.  Steve’s spoof on Obama’s healthcare speech before Congress was hillarious and has been viewed over 1,800 times on YouTube!  

Thanks for your patience and understanding in this difficult time.  Steve’s passing was so sudden that it was like punch to the gut.   We’ve spent the last 45 days sucking air and trying to recover from this tragedy. But, as the famous saying goes, “the show must go on!”  We’re picking ourselves up off the floor, dusting ourselves off, and returning to our mission.  Our voices need to be heard!

We miss you Steve.  May the four winds blow you safely home.
