Dear Penny and Mike,

I appreciated your fax - at last I can put the past behind me and live for the moment. No words can describe how grateful I am for everything that you have done to make this possible. Penny - you have been more than my lawyer throughout the ordeal; you were my friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I thought - as you have no idea what I look like! - that you would enjoy this tangible proof of a happy ending. **** and I married on May 13th in Barbados - just the four of us, **** and I, his brother and wife. A perfect ceremony in the garden.

My warmest wishes.

- Luisa
