    Hey Michael, hope this note finds you and Nance doing well. Dang, I’m just seeing this message so I apologize for the long delay. Thanks for reaching out. Indeed, I’m trying my best to keep those indies alive! I wanted to tell you my wife (Flower) and I just had our first baby on 11/6. Her name is Pearl. Life is good in TN. I hope to see you guys down the road. Don’t be surprised if I show up someday! All the best, Stephen
