A married couple was in a terrible
accident where the man's face was severely
burned.

The doctor told the husband that they couldn't

too skinny.

from her buttocks.

The husband and wife agreed that they would tell
no one about where the skin came from, and they
requested that the doctor also honor their secret.

the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded
at the man's new face.

He looked more handsome than he ever had before!
All his friends and relatives just went on and

One day, he was alone with his wife, and he
was overcome with emotion at her sacrifice.

He said, 'Dear, I just want to thank you for
everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you?'

'My darling,' she replied, 'I get all the thanks I
