August 15, 2010 was the day that I met both Katie and her family. It was a Sunday afternoon and I had been invited out to the Iverson’s for Sabbath dinner . . . and to meet Katie and her family. So the first person I really interacted with in the family was Jeni, the outgoing, crazy little sister. . . .
The first time I met Steven. . . well. Let me back up, because like most good stories, this one actually begins with a couple of wonderful people. . . .
Well, let’s see. I met Katie officially on August 15th, 2010. But the story starts a little before that. Mr. and Mrs. Iverson have always been very kind to me. I have often been invited to their house for dinners and lunches, birthdays and holidays. . . .
We met on August 18th, 2010 at the insistence of Mr. and Mrs. Iverson. One week later we were writing emails like it was going out of style.
