    I glad I found your podcast, Dave. Sort of stumbled around and found it. Great talk with Steve. We’ve known each other since high school. His dad amazed me. I was moved by your work with Ralph.

      We were running out of time and we’ll be sure to get in the visit they both made to Duke for basketball late in his dad’s life. Working with Ralph is one of the true blessings in life. I told his wife I think God wants me to be there now.
