The story of Ralph and Edna...

 Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want
 them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all
 they have.  Ralph and Edna were both patients in a
 mental hospital.  One day while they were walking past
 the hospital swimming pool.  Ralph suddenly jumped into
 the deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him.  She swam to the bottom
 and pulled him out.  When the Head Nurse Director
 became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately
 ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now
 considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have
 good news and bad news.  The good news is
 you're being discharged, since you were able to
 rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the
 life of the person you love.  I have concluded that
 your act displays sound mindedness.

The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his
 bathrobe belt right after you saved him.  I am so
 sorry, but he's dead.'

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to
 dry. How soon can I go home?'

people's money.
