"To all my friends in our pool league, I'd like to thank you with all my heart. This has been a hard time for every one of you concerned. I hated to put all of you through this. It's been tough on my wife and I too. Over a year of it. It hurts not to see you guys at least once a week too. I was hoping I'd made some friends out there. I really didn't think I had much chance to come back, so when I saw my votes I was pretty overwhelmed!
Thanks to all of you! Love, Gary Stevens"
