Marriage menagerie - In your October 2006 issue, I read about a groom's pet hen serving as a bridesmaid. I attended the wedding of my granddaughter, in which the groom's pet dog served as ring bearer.

Iuka, Miss.

Editor's note: Barnes en­­closed a newspaper clipping about the event, in which Coltrane, a golden lab, served as ring bearer, wearing a bow tie for the occasion.


Familiar face
- It was a real treat to see the picture of Nola Ochs, in Hays, Kan. ('Grandmother, 95, hitting the books,' January). She is from my neck of the woods in western Kansas, and a longtime neighbor of my sister and her husband, Anna Belle and Oral. Congratulations, Nola!

Marie (Wheeler) Horton
Monroeville, Pa.


A real blessing
- I am writing to thank you for publishing my skating story ('Cherishes memory of ice skating with mother,' Heart of the Home, January). In the letter you sent with a copy of the article, it says that 'the distinction of having a contribution chosen is more to be valued than the payment.' You are so right. It was a real blessing for me.

I sent the story in with the idea that it would be published so my mother could read it and know how much I appreciated her. Although she passed away the day before her issue came in the mail, she did know that it had been accepted and published, which was a joy for her. And that is all that I wanted to do: bring a little happiness to my mother's life.

Thank you again, and God bless.
