Jo Ellen Duncan Marries Kenneth A. Dent Saturday PAMPA. TEXAS Jfff/H June ,8, I«« Hospital patient cool to unwelcome visitors By Abigail Van Buran W 101 tf CMtMl TMftMt-fl. V. MfVl flVM.r NK.1 DEAR ABBY: My husband had surgery recently, and while he was still out of it, some relatives he never sees otherwise came to the hospital to visit him. Abby, please tell your readers that the last thing a person needs or wants when he's had surgery is company! I have had surgery and I know what it's like to have some idiot sit by your bed and talk to you all afternoon under the mistaken notion that you need "cheering up." I have even seen rooms with "NO VISITORS" signs on the doors, but little groups of people "sneak in" for a few minutes because they think they are so special that the patient needs only to see them to be happy. What in the world is the matter with those creeps who think they are the exceptions? All a patient wants is to be left alone. [Some don't even want their best friends around when they're feeling rotten.] BEEN THERE . DEAR BEEN: Your letter will do more for some port- surgical patients than a "NO VISITORS" sign. Thanks for writing. DEAR ABBY: My husband wants two funeral services when he dies. One in his home town and one in the city which he is now living. He says he has about an equal number of friends in both places, and he's probably right. I say one funeral is enough, don't you? CRAZY MAN'S WIFE DEAR WIFE: According to fome. one funeral It one too many. Read this: DEAR ABBY: A very sensible woman wrote to say that she did not want to attend her own funeral. She has the right idea, but the wrong exit. I carry one small card which states that I have donated my eyes to the eye bank, my kidneys to the Kidney Foundation, and the rest of me goes to the State University Hospital for research. [There will be enough left of me to "say a prayer over" for a religious service.] I am not a rich man, and this is the only way I can leave something of value to my fellowman. My wishes are legal and binding, and no judge and no court and none of my heirs can change it. Just knowing that a sightless person will one day see thru my eyes, or that my kidneys will prolong the lives of two others gives me great pleasure. These gifts cannot be taxed, dissipated or sold to the highest bidder. How selfish can a person be to take perfectly useful organs to his grave! STURGIS, MICHIGAN DEAR STURGIS: Right on! One telephone call to your lawyer, doctor or the Medical School of your. State University will do It, ; -rt,, ; , •••.., J j il ,.--,i, li , l/ . : ..... ; ,.; .. DEAR ABBY: Enclosed is an invitation to a Bar Mitzvah. [A Bar Mitzvah officially marks a Jewish boy's entry into the adult male community, traditionally at age 13.] This message seems so appropriate to all teen-agers, I thought perhaps you'd like to share it with your readers. HOW TO MAKE A BAR MITZVAH Take one son. . . . Carefully measure equal amount of parental guidance and benign neglect. Add unknown quantities of peer influence and sibling rivalry. Butter up occasionally, coddle regularly, beat rarely and watch closely. Sprinkle with liberal amounts of Judaism. Simmer slowly without either of you boiling over. Do not baste, but on occasion allow to stew in his own juices. Let him rise to his full height, while keeping the lid on. After 13 years, hope that he is warm, mature, and well-seasoned. Cover with an appropriate dressing. Serve proudly to friends and family. P. S. The above was written by the boy's father, a Binghamton, N. Y. physician. A FAN Problem? Tnit Abby. For a personal reply, write to ABBY, BOX WM, L. A., CALIF.
