Dear Ann Landers,
Thank you for printing that letter describing how friends, as a joke, had my wife and me put in jail on our wedding night 54 years ago. We saw it in the Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. That very evening, I received a telephone call from Scotts, Mich. It was from an old friend saying she was glad to finally know what had really happened. Our maid of honor read it in the Gazette Telegraph in Colorado Springs. Friends in Dalton, Ga., read it in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution. Other friends saw it in Londonderry, N.H. An Army buddy in California phoned about it, and so did friends here in Hershey, Pa. I'm sure we will be hearing from many others who were amused and connected us with it even though no names were mentioned. This column brought back some wonderful memories to us old-timers and let our friends know we're still around. -- F.H. in Hershey, Pa.

Dear F.H.,
Thanks for your vote of approval.

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.

Tell us what you think?
