“Katie is such a genuine person, she deserves happiness! Dying to know what her girls think of the lucky guy”
What an inspiring cover story on Katie Couric’s wonderful news. I have always admired her strength and courage and, most importantly, Katie’s commitment to keeping her late husband’s memory alive and dedication to her family. I, too, lost my husband at 43 years of age last year and was left to raise our very young son. I understand how bittersweet this journey is, and I wish Katie a lifetime of (well-deserved) happiness.
Bravo to Katie Couric for finally getting reengaged, and to People for featuring it as the cover story. Reading about her previous husband Jay’s death was heartbreaking. I hope she will be happy in this new marriage and new milestone in her life. Best of luck to you, Katie!

Wonderful news, Katie, and so well-deserved! Interesting that both your fiancé, John Molner, and your beloved late husband, Jay Monahan, share the same initials, J. M. Good Karma!

I have been a fan of Alec Baldwin’s for years and have always enjoyed his work. I am delighted that he is getting a second chance at a happy marriage and the joy of being a father.

Alec Baldwin finds a new life with a woman who is young enough to be his child, and now he’s ready to get it right this time? In my next life, I’m coming back as a man!
AN UNBREAKABLE FAMILY
I just read your article “An Unbreakable Family,” and it brought tears to my eyes. Seeing what Cheryl and Keith Wyse have done for those girls, and the fact that they started a foster home for children with disabilities, truly shows the depth of humanity that is still evident in the world.
SUICIDE PREVENTION HERO
I really appreciated your article on Sgt. Kevin Briggs and all the effort he puts into saving people from suicide. I’ve had friends and family attempt to take their lives. It brings tears to my eyes to see lives saved and know that suicide attempts don’t have to end in pain and loss.
Valerie’s enthusiasm is contagious and a constant reminder to live your best life every day. I wish her luck on Dancing with the Stars and, more importantly, many more months of love and life.
UPDATE| TEEN MURDER
In our July 8 issue, we covered the chilling case of Skylar Neese, the 16-year-old from West Virginia, who was stabbed to death allegedly by two of her best friends. Rachel Shoaf, 17, confessed in May, but now prosecutors have identified the name of the second friend and now suspect, Shelia Eddy, 17. Prosecutors say she consoled the family and posted loving tweets in the aftermath. Shoaf pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is awaiting sentencing; Eddy has yet to plea. “The only thing I care about is that they get what’s coming to them,” said Skylar’s father, Dave, to ABC News.
In our Emmy Insider story, we incorrectly listed the name, date and network of the awards show. It is the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, to be held on Sunday, Sept. 22, airing on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. We regret the error.
