I would like to call attention to, and thank from the bottom of my heart, those kind and thoughtful people who shared their homes and the warmth of the holiday season with me and other single women who might otherwise spend the special time of year without family and quite alone.

We all find from experience that a woman alone is often left alone because she is an uneven number at a gathering. I have heard from other women that often they are deserted after the loss of a spouse, either because of death or divorce. I’m just it’s not intentional, but just a fact of life that the oversight is made. Just know that when you include a single to enjoy your festive gathering you are making that someone happier than you can imagine. Jane M. Hennings Rockland
