I grew up with my wife as the 'girl next door', but our lives took different paths after HS graduation. Almost 35 years later we crossed paths and both were alone. Six months later we married and are approaching our 13th anniversary. We have seen every episode...many several times...and continue to laugh and cry together at so many of the situations. We really just wanted to let those responsible for such an outstanding production know how deeply they have affected our lives in a positive manner. We are indebted to the actors and all others who put this show together for bringing such an absolute joy and contentment into our lives.
