"Hi, I am Susan Weese. I am with the Post Newspaper and I am here to interview Dan Young. Are you him?" says Sue.

The post is a major city newspaper, Susan had interviewed famous people, even the president of the United States. Susan was a well known reporter in the Dallas area.

Dan is a famous psychologist and author who did marriage seminar's. The reporter wanted to do a story on his marriage with Stephanie

"Yes, come in," says Dan.

They both go into the living room where his wife Stephanie is allready seated. Dan and the reporter sit down.

"I understand you do marriage seminars. I am interested in how it helped you through the time of you daughter's death," says Susan.

"Tell me, how did your daughter died?" asks Susan.

"My daughter Lorna just learned how to drive. She went out on a Friday night with friends to a dinner and a movie. She was on her way home when a drunk driver went into her lane, and she had a head
on collision. She died on the scene," says Dan.

"I am sorry to hear that. It must of been awful," says the reporter.

"That was our only daughter," says Stephanie.

"You teach a marriage seminar. Did the things you teach help you through this hard time?" asks the reporter.

"Yes it did, One of the things I teach is about communication. One of the most important things to have a successful marriage, is keeping the lines of communication open.," Says Dan.
.
"Did you do anything special during this time?" asks Susan.

"I put my walk with my talk. Stephanie and me would sit down every night after the dishes were done, and just talked about the day. From that we both would talk about Lorna. We would sometime
relive happy moments with her, and there were also days where we would both cry" paused Dan.

"That was how we were able to get through this time," says Stephanie.

"I assume that you would recommend this to every couple that is grieving," says Susan.

"Yes, I would and I would also include prayer. I would suggest that people would pray as a couple. The Lord did something through these times we had together, and I know he healed us," says Dan.

"Thanks for your time," says Susan standing up.

"The story will be in the faith section of this Sunday's paper. I hope you like it, says the reporter.
.
She leaves and heads back to the newspaper.

Would have liked the writer to include a little about how the interview affected the reporter, but the word count is always a factor, I know. :)

Nice format to tell this story in.

I was distracted by a good many punctuation errors. Maybe you could find a buddy who can proof for you on that sort of thing.

Otherwise, the piece flowed well, and it has a WONderful message of hope and prayer through adversity. :)
