Forwarded Messages

I ran through my Inbox (again) to clear stuff up. I should have included this during my spring-cleaning but hell, what's there left to do when everything's done on schedule! :)

I came across an email dated March 2001 from Mark, an old friend whom I had left teeth marks on, but everything is in the past now. We've made peace with each other and it's quite nice to read this, coming from him. I'd like to share it with you.
