Dear Ann Landers,
This is in reply to "Manchester, Conn.," who warned readers about satin sheets. Satin sheets have their good points, Ann. My mother had Parkinson's disease for 13 years. Her doctor recommended satin sheets because they alleviated the difficulty she had moving around. Those sheets really helped. People with similar problems should try them. -- Thankful for Satin Sheets in Jacksonville, Fla.

Bree LeMaire's Comment
Dear Ann, This is a response to the woman who said her husband was less than affectionate after many years of marriage. You encouraged her to support his affections. I want to take your advice a step further and say, she needs to be explicit in what she needs. My husband, (an x-priest) was willing but not knowledgeable about what was affectionate. We were both retired and home, working as writers and we were like ships that passed one another without contact throughout the day. I asked for a hug, a kiss, or some form of contact affection each time we went by one another. Whenever we left or hung up the phone, I told him I loved him and asked for the same response. Needless to say, I am a satisfied wife because I asked for what I needed and was specific. Our relationship only blossomed. Thanks for reading this.

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.
