New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 11, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas MeraldZeltunrj D Tuasirtflv Marrh 11 1Q07 n Lonely widow cherishes friends anniversary letter Dear Abby After my father died unexpectedly I didnt know what to do when my parents next wedding anniversary came along I was young under 30 and was not aware of the proper procedure Should I buy my mother a gift as I had always done for them in the past Would it be better not to even mention the date to my mother As I recall I invited my mother for dinner no gift and the only a mention of what day it was when we finished dinner Now I feel I did the right thing She knew I remembered and she was not alone for dinner My husband died unexpectedly last summer Today would have been our 54th wedding anniversary In the past we had exchanged cards with certain friends and relatives on such an occasion Yesterday I received a lovely letter from our best mans widow recalling pleasant times we shared in the past That is the only indication from anyone that the anniversary of our special day was today I appreciated the letter I received so much but I am sad that no other close friend or relative remembered I would suggest that when close friends or relatives are in a similar situation sending a thinking of you card would be much appreciated I felt so alone and forgetten and ashamed that I have been guilty of the same neglect of others in the past I didnt realize how much it would mean to know that others remembered too No name or city please Just sign SAD WIDOW IN ILLINOIS DEAR SAD WIDOW Please accept my sympathy on the loss of your beloved husband There is much to be learned from your letter about the value of reaching out to others Dear Abby One of my family members was recently married She kept her last name and added her husbands name to it so that she is now Mary SmithJones Her husband Harry panJhtS boughithem a gift and addressed the card tf The Jones My relative threw a fit complaining that she was not included on the card My mother countered that had she addressed the card to the SmithJones the husband would not have been included The way I see it my mother is right If the gift were only to my relative it would be addressed to Mary SmithJones but if its to both it should be The Jones What is the proper way to address the whole family Do we have to write out Mr Jones and Mrs Smith Jones To me thats just a waste of time when we could simply write The Jones Please settle this controversy and tell us how its done FEUDING FAMILY DEAR FEUDING FAMILY According to the etiquette books

and finetune a 1995 law decreeing zero tolerance for drugs alcohol and disruptive behavior on school campuses That may wind up in more kids being expelled to the street which is bad But I believe it is worse to tell a school district youve got to keep the kid in school even though he may Suit for control of Kenedy charity foundation settled CORPUS CHRISTI AP A lawsuit over control of the
