A Smile in the Mail

My condolence card must have finaly made it to the Cochran family, since today I received my eagerly-awaited response (the postman must be working overtime this week).

It arrived in a hand-addressed envelope. "Who was it from?" I wondered, looking at the Los Angeles return address. But when I saw the picture of a smiling Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., my spirits were lifted.

"If it doesn't fit, you must acquit." — Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. Esq. 1937-2005. (06/07/05)

On the inside is a printed passage that says:

The Cochran Family deeply appreciates and gratfully acknowledges your kind expressions of love, your prayers and your support during this time of sorrow.

You have provided balm for our spirits, strength for our souls, and you have uplifted our hearts. Your gifts are evidence of the bountiful "legacy of love" which was also the essence of Johnnie. It is wonderful to know that not only was he a light in our lives, but in yours as well.

The family of Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr.
