SHMILY.  A Valentine's Day Love Story.

What did it mean? SHMILY? I would find it, stumble on it really, in strange places.  It SHMILYwas some kind of game for my grandparents, and I didn't understand it. What exactly was a SHMILY?  And why was it sometimes in capital letters, sometimes handwritten in beautiful script, and sometimes the "shmily" was hidden away.
