I’m not sure what prompted this little plea, but it was on the front page of the paper. I love the opinion pieces written by Mr. Crossett and this one could certainly apply today. Call, email, or write to your mother!

Write to Mother
How about that letter to mother?
Perhaps it has been some time since you wrote your mother a letter.
She no doubt knows that you have your family worries and demands, and mother knows you are well, else she would have heard from you.
But that is not enough for mother.
She wants to get a letter from you, if you cannot visit her.
As she grows older, the days when you were a child make more impression on her memory then present time events.
Often she wonders if you have already forgotten her.
Why not write tonight to the best friend you can have, ever, on this earth- write to your mother.
