New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 20, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas EntertainmentFinal performances Dear Abby Friend Mourning Beloved Pet Will Welcome Simple Sympathy LESLIE: KR IF WALOT/Stalf PhotOfrapfctr Roberta Elliott and Jim Schmidt play star crossed lovers in Circle Arts Theatre's production of "And a Nightingale Sang." The humorous and poignant portrait of an /English family during World War ll will have its final performances tonight and tomorrow night, beginning at 8 15 p rn Tickets and reservations are available at Krause Books, 625 0251 DEAR ABBY: I have a friend whose dog is sick and growing feeble, and will soon have to be put to sleep. He has had the do# for Id years and is very attached to her. When his pet dies, what expression of my sympathy would be appropriate? This truly concerns me. I want to show my friend how much I care about his loss, hut I don’t want to come across as foolish or overreacting. HIS FRIEND OK MANY YEARS DEAR FRIEND: One who must put a beloved pet to sleep after 13 years of togetherness will grieve for that pet much as a parent would mourn the loss of a child. Not to diminish the depth of human relationships, but that’s the feeling many pet owners have experienced. So do send flowers or a warm letter of condolence. It will be deeply appreciated, I assure you. DEAR ABBY My husband of 41 years died last summer, so in order to avoid receiving Christmas cards addressed to Edith Johnson, which I detest, I sent my Christmas cards out early and clearly wrote my return address as Mrs Horace A Johnson ” Well, some insisted on addressing their Christmas cards to Edith Johnson I was so angry that I drew a line through the ‘ Edith and above it wrote “Mrs Horace A and returned it to the senders, explain mg that although I had lost rnv husband, his name was given - not loaned — to me. A neighbor insists that a new etiquette has taken over, and a widow s mail should lie addressed t . her by her given name MRS HORACE A JOHNSON DEAR MRS. .JOHNSON: Your neighbor is in error It’s the woman’s choice. She may ascher first name*, the- initial of hc*r maiden name and her husband’s last name* — or, as your pre-fe-r, she can fie* addressed as Mrs. Horace A. Johnson I hat nam* is yours until you change- it by remarriage*. And if you n*-v*-r remarry, you regain sour husband’s name* forever.
