Dear Ann Landers, I am a self-employed maid who would like to get a message across to the people I work for. Christmas is just around the corner. Please don't give me a sweater or a gift certificate. What I really need is CASH. For workers like me, money is the best present. Thanks, Ann. -- Tapped Out in San Diego

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:
Dear Readers, , whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.
