Does anyone write letters any more?

With Facebook, Twitter, email & texting- it seems like no one writes letters any more. The mail has become boring- either junk mail or bills. Besides a personal note in greeting cards or a Christmas family news letter - do you hand write letters? I miss them.

  • Yes. I write letters to my grandparents and one of my best friends. My grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's (she passed away in December) and my cousin said she would always ask for my letters to be read to her. It was new for her every day.  Knowing that made my heart flutter. I still write to my Grandpa.

  • I write letters to my son in college all the time and when my husbands grandmother was alive I wrote her. I also write my dads wife (not internet savvy). We just sent off thank you cards and all of us, kids included hand wrote a line or two to each person.
