Bad News Didn't Travel Fast Enough For One Good Friend
DEAR ABBY: Three days before Christmas the daughter of a very close friend died suddenly. My friend (I’ll call her Mary) and her husband have always gone to Florida between Christmas and New Year’s, so I assumed that they had gone there. Imagine my shock when I heard the terrible news IO days after their daughter s funeral!
Several of Mary’s very close friends are also my friends, and not one of them called to tell me about the death or the funeral! I was totally shocked when I learned too late to help and comfort Mary during her tragic ordeal. She is such a giving person herself that I feel cheated for not having been notified. I could have carried meals to her and helped out in many ways had I only known.
I am furious with our mutual friends for not calling me. I suppose each one assumed someone else had told me, but when I didn’t show up at the funeral, wouldn’t you think someone would have called to find out why I wasn’t there?
Please tell your readers that if they hear of a death or illness in a family, to call everyone they think would want to know. So what if they already knew? They’d thank you for thinking about them.
I’m sure I’m not the first person this has happened to. We don’t have to get out the horse and buggy and travel 20 miles to reach our friends — let’s use that wonderful invention, the telephone.
— HURT AND ANGRY
DEAR HURT: No one (well, almost no one) enjoys being the bearer of bad news, so I’m printing your letter with a reminder to readers: When tragedy strikes the family of a friend, please notify mutual friends on the chance that no one else has.
DEAR ABBY: The letter from “Birthday Girls in Eau Claire, Wis.,” who had a woman in their office who refused to disclose her birthday, reminded me of a local situation: There’s a lovely elderly widow in our town who also kept her age a secret.
One day I happened to wander through the local cemetery and noticed a beautiful tombstone in a family plot. This lady’s name was on the tombstone, together with the day and year of her birth. There was a blank space to be filled in later.
I met this lady on the street one day and commented on how young she looked for her age — then I told her the day and year she was born.
She looked surprised, smiled and said, “Now, you know I am not that old!” I smiled back, said nothing, but never did tell her how I
found out. _____
- MUM S THE WORD IN VERMONT
DEAR MUM: If the lady reads this, she’ll know how you unearthed her grave secret. I wasn’t aware that a headstone was put up before the deceased was put down, or is this a put-on?
DEAR ABBY: I have a very nosy sister-in-law. She’s my husband’s sister. When we sold our home, she wanted to know how much we got for it. When we bought a new house, she wanted to know how much we paid for it. When my father died, she asked me if he had an “estate,” meaning, “How much did he leave you?”
She asked me what we got our daughter for Christmas, etc. How can I tell her that the things she wants to know are none of her
business without being rude?
- TIRED OF BEING NICE IN AUSTIN
DEAR TIRED: Don’t look for a way to be “nice” to a prying person who has no concern for your privacy or feelings. Tell her flat out that you prefer not to answer questions of a personal nature. Period.
