Re: Fw: worth passing on

Dear Laura,

  I have just read your message and I am sitting here trying to type this to you with tears in my eyes.  Your mother-in-law must be a very proud mother indeed to have a son as worthy as your husband.  You are a very lucky woman indeed, as is your daughter to have a father as honorable as hers.
  There are so many wrong people in this world today, not just here in the good ole USA, but all over, that it is so wonderful to hear of one good one.  The good always outweigh the bad.
  Here's to hoping the future milenium will bring forth more good men such as your wonderful husband.
