Hi Rand

I just want to say that its not wrong to think and act as you do, quite the
reverse really and you don't have to defend your actions. Your moral
convictions speak for themselves, don't they. But, I do have to admire your
support of your wife. I have known a couple ms victims and they didn't
always have the support of their spouse. All these spouses could see was the
loss, not the gain from knowing and living with that person. They would look
back with saddness at what they had..What a shame for them to be sad over a
past that was filled with good times.

Hers to you and your wife for living a good life.
