Dear Ann Landers,
You have printed several letters about grown children who make no provisions for their later years because they expect their parents to leave them an inheritance. I thought you might enjoy this classified ad from the Everett, Wash., Herald. It appeared in Reader's Digest.
"Dick and Pegge's 50th anniversary party has been canceled due to lack of interest. They are now going around the world -- courtesy of their children's inheritance." -- L.K. in Chicago
Beautiful! I hope your letter will encourage more seniors to do the same. Many parents scrimp and save, denying themselves the small luxuries of life so they can leave something to children and grandchildren who, too often, neither deserve nor appreciate it.
