Son’s Memories of Mother Are Not Clouded With Guilt
DEAR ABBY: Quite some time 4go, you published a letter from someone who had lost his mother or Cather and had failed to communicate his love to them. Then it was too tate.
I want you to know that I benetted from that letter and your response. Recently, I lost my mother. She was only 69 and died of a heart attack. She was such a sweetheart. Thanks to you, my sadness was not due to guilt, because for the last IO or 12 years of her life I telephoned her regularly, wrote letters from time to time and remembered her on special occasions. I also visited her every three months although it was a 13-hour drive. On those occasions we had so many laughs and such a good time.
While I feel that I would have tried to be a good son, your column reminded me that we are on this Earth such a short time, and after someone dies, it’s too late to say, “I love you.” Thank you.
If you want to use this letter, you may use my name.
THOMAS T. MENEAR, ATLANTA
DEAR MR. MENEAR: The letter that made a difference in your life is one that has been clipped and carried in more wallets than any other. And here it is:
DEAR ABBY: I am the most brokenhearted person in the world. I could always find the time to go everywhere else, but never time to visit Mom and Dad. They sat at home and loved me just the same. It’s too late now to give them those few hours
of happiness I was too selfish and busy to give.
Now when I go to their graves and see the green grass above them, I wonder if God will ever forgive me for the heartaches I must have caused them while they were alive. I pray to God that those who still have their parents to visit, do so, and show their love and respect while there is still time, for it’s later than you think.
TOO LATE DEAR ABBY: I just learned that the son of some good friends of ours committed suicide. They live in a distant city, but we have had a long-

time close friendship.
We want to write them a letter of condolence, but are not sure whether we should mention the cause of their son’s death or not. Please advise us.
LONGTIME FRIENDS DEAR FRIENDS: To quote from my booklet, “How to Write Letters for All Occasions”: “It isn't necessary to mention the cause of death. Many people ignore a death by suicide because they don’t know what to say. Express your sorrow just as if the person had died of natural causes.”
