OK - I guess it is too long. I apologize. I can try to skim it down a bit and post again. I would be willing to pay someone to do this as well.

Time for bed...I am beat.

Hello again. I scaled the letter down to just the facts. I know it was a long letter before. I hope this is a better size. Thanks again.

Dear Lisa have you given any thought to revising a form letter to accomodate the contents of your letter. If you go to www.mangeruca.com and under letters to a "potential relative" you might find it not so difficult as you might imagine.....=Peter=
