    Muriel Bedford: It isn’t every day that your only son gets married.
    Judge Bedford: He’s your son, too, Muriel. I mean it’s about time you started taking half the blame.
    Dale Launer (b. 1953)

    For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
    Bible: New Testament, Galatians 2:19-20.
