Dear mrs buffet, about that index fund

Ran across this recently and thought that this group of passive investors would enjoy it.

I hope Warren has many more years upon this earth, for your sake and for the sake of investors everywhere. I am particularly grateful for his recent support of index investing, as he reminded us that a healthy dose of humility is a key ingredient to successful lifelong investing.

Your husband has spent a lifetime understanding businesses and estimating their worth.
He has earned the right to be snarky about picking winners.
