Take a good look at the couple in the picture. These folks are an example of the 'better angels in us all.'

The groom backed out of marrying their daughter, but instead of trying to get all their money back on everything, this couple made it a very giving event for 200 homeless people.

Last Sunday, Carol and Willie Fowler were supposed to see their daughter Tamara get married in Atlanta.  And they'd spent thousands of dollars on a reception for 200 guests.

But then . . . the wedding was CALLED OFF.  And it sounds like the GROOM was the one responsible.  Now, normally that would mean the father-of-the-bride would scramble to get all his money back, while having an ANEURISM.  But not Willie.

Instead, he suggested to his wife that they let the reception go ahead as planned.  Except instead of inviting friends and family . . . they teamed up with a local charity and invited 200 HOMELESS people from the area.  Most of them were families with kids.

Also, Sunday was Willie's 70th birthday.  So he COULD have thrown the reception for himself.  But they ended up calling it "The First Annual Fowler Family Celebration of Love."  And all 200 guests enjoyed a four-course meal.

How about the jilted bride? Well, it's obvious that she's just like her parents. She thought the altered plans were a great idea. Don't know who the groom was, but this seems like the kind of family you'd be glad to marry into!

Carol and Willie are also involved in a great organization called, "Hosea Feed the Hungry"
