    Thank you so much for our Cyber Love Story article. We still like to look back at meeting on eharmony and the great experience we both had. We encourage others to give it a try also, but be patient! It took me months to find someone who I get through all the stages of communication with. It did not take Gerald as long. We are so happy to have been married on the Farmers Insurance Love Float. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Our goal after was to enter into the next journey of our lives, and we have. We are pregnant and due Decemeber 21st. God Bless everybody!
