- Jun 12, 2008Stephen! How are you doing pal? I intended to respond to your last
email before now. Sam won the medal. I just happened to A) be lucky
enough to have it passed on to me, and B) be lucky enough to work it
out in a court settlement that I would donate the medal as part of
the agreement. If those guys knew that I had been in contact with
Ted and John prior to the mediation they would not be happy.
I looked at the CD you gave me today. Very nice! I plan on calling
you in the near future.
Take care pal!
