Editor: Your story on Patricia and Kevin Bartley, the couple who fell in love in prison, was heartwarming. It made me feel good to think that people could lift themselves up in that way.

So often all we hear about men and women in jail is that they are "life-long criminals" and "bad people."

This couple prove that with God's help, and determination, you can make something of your life no matter how bad things have gotten.

Praise God. And thank you again. You made my day and, yes, restored my faith in humanity. Keep writing those good stories.

With all the crime and misery in the world, we need all the good news we can get. Love is such a wonderful subject anyway. Looking at Patricia and Kevin in their picture, you could see love in the air.
