function ShowInfo($fname,$lname) {

/*Passed parameters need to be assigned
values so we can use them.*/
$this->fname = $fname;
$this->lname = $lname;

will assign the final value to a return variable*/
$ret = "The name of the person is " . $this->fname;
$ret.= "The last name is " . $this->lname;

return $ret;
