I am Home... Steve Walker
« on: January 01, 2015, 10:38:22 AM »
   What a Deal.... The last month or so put me through a battle. One I could of not won if it had not been for God and my wife.

   My wife and I are totally overwhelmed by all the prayers, cards, thoughts, etc. All I know to do now is continue to heal and try and pay it forward. It has been a rough go as you know and then yesterday our furnace went out. It should be fixed tomorrow.
   Above all, I hope you all know that we don't forget what has been done for us in our time of need. I hope and pray that if any of you need anything that I am able to help out in some way.
Thanks again for everything. I can not hardly wait till Rally Time...
Steve
