with his sister.


- It's nice to meet you, sir.

- Likewise.

Well, listen,

I really have to be going.

But if you need anything or any

help with the local paparazzi,

I'm here.

I will.

It's good to meet you.

Bye, Mr. Shaw.

See? I told you everything

was gonna be fine.

Whatever problems Steven had

whatever demons

he may have been facing,

we can find comfort and solace

in the fact that his soul

is now in a better place,

a place where love and peace

are eternal,

where there is no pain

and suffering.

And we know that one day

we shall be reunited with him,

in this glorious heaven.

"I lift up my eyes to the hills.

Where does my help come from?

My help comes from the lord,
