Dear Ann Landers,
You performed a great service when you published that letter from "Bill in Illinois." He pointed out that stroke victims often behave inappropriately -- laughing when they are sad and crying when they are happy. I, too, suffered a stroke, and despite much therapy, I still cannot speak clearly. And, like Bill, my emotions manifest themselves in unusual ways. I've showed your column with Bill's letter to my therapist. He said you really do a splendid job of educating the world. -- Dick in Kentucky

Dear Dick,
I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity. Thank you for the warm compliment.

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:


Dear Readers,
, My x-girlfriend who lived with my son and I for 16 years died of cancer. Prior before we knew she had cancer-she moved out because of an addiction problem. We did stay very close before she died. Her x-husband an attorney took over her finances and the burial arrangements. I being financially set was okay with that, 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?
