Epilogue, by James "Kimo" Rosen
"I have seen this email circulating for many years, and it has always brought tears to my eyes as one of the coolest love stories in history. Even better than Romeo and Juliet. This story was promoted as a true story, in fact Oprah Winfrey was going to produce a movie etc, then the author admits it was fabricated, none the less, still a beautiful story... here's the proof it was fabricated. You can find further information about this story by Googling Herman Rosenblat." http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/29/books/29hoax.html?pagewanted=all
