The Importance of Getting EVERTHING Wright
Gallaghers, a couple from Minneapolis, decided to go to Florida during
the icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent
their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
Both husband and wife had hectic schedules and it was difficult to
coordinate their travel schedules. The husband left Minnesota and flew
to Florida on Thursday while his wife planned to fly down the day
Mr. Gallagher checked into the hotel and decided to send an email to
his wife. But in typing he accidentally left out one letter in her
email address. Without realizing his error, he sent the email.
Meanwhile, in Houston, the
widow Gallager returned home from her husband's funeral. He had been a
minister of many years, called home to glory following a sudden heart
attack. The widow decided to check her email, expecting messages from
relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted.
The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor,
and saw the computer screen which read:
