When my husband, Bill, and I were thinking about another trip to Europe in our golden years, we decided I could use some help with Bill's wheelchair and driving in Europe. David, a UCLA student, worked for us part-time. He helped Bill, drove him to the office and fixed everything. He was strong, quick, resourceful and best of all, sunny. So we asked if he'd like to share our trip and give us a hand in Europe. He did a thumbs up, flashed a smile and suddenly the three of us were flying to France.

When Erik Jansson was barely into his teens he used to sneak into the garage and lift his brother David's weights. "Nobody caught him and he kept covered up," David remembered with a chuckle. "Then one day about a year later he uncovered. I said, 'Whoa, this guy's getting big.' " At 13, that was the start of Jansson's body building career, which is still in its infancy but has opened to rave reviews.

The article "A Romantic Era Ends for Chapel in the Canyon," Aug. 31, brought back some poignant memories for me. I was privileged to have been a friend of David St. Denis, the artist who painted the magnificent oils that hang at the church. The first time I viewed them, in fact, was at his suggestion. Going through the rooms with him as my guide and listening as he told me some of the stories behind the paintings was an experience I shall never forget. To the countless people who have admired the paintings, it may come as a surprise that David never took an art course.

A few weeks ago, David and Maddie, the detective hero and heroine of television's "Moonlighting," fulfilled the dearest wish of many of their letter-writing fans: They did "it." The most recent episode of the show--the last of the season--featured their morning after. A fretting Maddie (played by the sleek Cybill Shepherd) tried to talk Bruce Willis' lowbrow David into signing a contract averring that the hip-to-hip incident never happened.

TAMPA, Fla. -- When Pam and Grant Finlayson moved from California to Massachusetts and didn't have a dryer, Mitt Romney helped her fold her laundry. When Pam gave birth to a very sick premature daughter, Kate, he prayed over her in the intensive care unit. “I will never forget that when he looked down tenderly at my daughter, his eyes filled with tears, and he reached out gently and stroked her tiny back,” Finlayson said. “I could tell immediately that he didn't just see a tangle of plastic and tubes; he saw our beautiful little girl, and he was clearly overcome with compassion for her.” That Thanksgiving, Romney and his sons turned up on her family's doorstep with a home-cooked meal.
