~ Teri, I just watched a the episode, “Right Hand of God,” from Quantum Leap. I thought, “She has the beauty of Marilyn, a genuineness of her own, and belongs on front of the Camera.” ~ I know you have a different life now, and I pray for you; that God will continue to bless you and fulfill your desires, and use you as His instrument for love in this world. Remember, God is always with you; he will never leave you or forsake you. God Bless you.
