Saturday News Roundup #122
- Jeff Steele’s family is requesting prayer for his health. Jeff, who led The Steeles until their retirement several years ago, fell down a concrete wall and down brick steps. He has been admitted to the hospital to determine if the fall was caused by a stroke. (Via Libbi Stuffle on Facebook.) (UPDATE, 2:04 P.M.) Jeff Steele is doing better enough that he posted this update on Facebook: “I have been in an information ‘black hole’ since Thursday evening when my incident took place. Doc said I could have this one chance. Thank you to Wesley and Trevor and Brad. You guys saved my life! I was talking to my friend Ashley Franks when she says my speech got slurred and I became incoherent! Ash I love you sweetie just DON’T tell em what I said!! LOL. Thanks to all of u who are praying for me. This is a lot more serious than I thought and I FEEL your prayers. Thank you so, so much. I love, love, love you all!! I am overwhelmed!”
