Thank You!

So Phyllis called me and told me to listen - and I am damned glad I did! Thanks for doing this guys - and Jordan for warming my heart hundreds of miles away. Hearing some of these voices and stories is so great having put roughly 12 years of time into Bloomington’s Industry and I miss it dearly. Keep Crushing’!
