Hart-felt wishes inspire Stu

CALGARY -- The ailing patriarch of a family of famous wrestlers has received more than 1,000 get well wishes from fans across the world.

Prime Minister Jean Chretien and Alberta Premier Ralph Klein were among those who wished Stu Hart, 85, a speedy recovery.

"There have been so many of them from all over the world -- Russia and China. Stu was quite pleased," his wife Helen said Sunday.

"He came home on a pass (Saturday) with a huge pile of letters."

Hart, the former owner of Stampede Wrestling, went to Calgary's Rockyview Hospital April 12 with heart problems. Doctors drained fluid in his lungs and around his heart from a bout of pneumonia but are still watching him closely before sending him home for good.

The Hart family has suffered its share of misfortune recently, starting when Hart's son Owen died in May 1999 performing a World Wrestling Federation stunt in Kansas City's Kemper Arena.

His widow, Martha Hart, recently won a $18-million US settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit against the WWF.

Then Hart's son-in-law Davey-Boy Smith was charged last year with two counts of threatening to kill Diana Hart -- Smith's

estranged wife -- and her sister Ellie.

The charges were dropped in December after Smith agreed to stay away from Diana.

But just days later, Smith was charged with threatening brother-in-law Bruce Hart -- the estranged husband of his new

girlfriend and brother of wrestling superstar Bret (The Hitman) Hart.
