I very much en­joyed “Me, My Mom and Sears” (May 2018). My mother worked for the depart­ment store for more than 30 years, so I could re­late to many of Me­gan Mur­phy’s ob­ser­va­tions—from her mother’s “prac­ti­cal and strong-willed” na­ture to the lone scotch mint in the bot­tom of her purse! My mom is now 87, and on one of our re­cent vis­its I read her the ar­ti­cle. We shared a few laughs and a tear or two. I know how hard Mom worked for us—her job was her so­cial life and a way to fi­nance our va­ca­tions. My heart goes out to any se­niors whose pen­sions may have been af­fected by the clos­ing of Sears.
