Letters to the editor

Readers respond to stories on second-generation friendships, hockey, and warm places to escape the elements.


I have witnessed how dysfunction and dissension can carry down through generations, leaving younger family members caught in the middle and breaking family bonds. But I’d never heard of the opposite situation (Connections, January 27). So it was beautiful to read the story of Bill and Bob and how their legacy of love has carried down to their granddaughters. Thank you to Jenna Russell for sharing this wonderful story.
