    I think that might be one of my most favorite newsletters!! Steve doesn’t say much, so to read the newsletter with his words in print, was enlightening. Thank you for sharing your story, Steve. And I had a little laugh at the part where he can be found on the floor at the back of the gym.. πŸ™‚
