@ Free Britney,
Thank you for pulling at the heart strings. Even though Gabrielle is a "representative in the political arena,she is a Hero or heroine in the everyday scope of things.

I do Not recall his Name, but supporters will long remember Garbrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly as a strong and loving couple who have shown us all the inner strength that can Nurse a spouse back to health.
Again thank you for the update on Gabby!!
