Would Like To Receive Cards
Dear Editor:
My mother, Mildred Cook, is 84 years old and has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.
I would like for her to receive cards or postcards from lots of people, for she really enjoys getting mail.

"Butter Pie" Recipe Wanted
Dear Editor:
I've been trying to find the recipe for a pie my mother used to make. She called it "Butter Pie."
I would also like to purchase some of the old-fashioned cornfield bean seeds. My grandmother and mother used to grow them about 60 years ago.

Dear Editor:
I'm from Covington, Kenton County, Kentucky. I met my husband on Sixth Street at the Greyhound Bus Station.
I now live in Harlan County, Kentucky.
I would like to have a photo of the bus station, if a reader has one to share.
