Amy: It’s never too late to remember our loved ones Dear Amy: I hope you can guide me. My husband’s 87year-old mother died in November. In January his younger brother died, and last week he lost his father. We live in a small city, and all of these relatives lived here for a few years at one time or another. No obituarASK ies were ever AMY put in the paper, but at this time I would like to enter one for each of these special people. Have we waited too long for his mother and brother? There are local people we see only occasionally who I think would like to know, but I don't want to just pick up the phone and call them. Any thoughts? —Wondering Dear Wondering: Many newspapers have paid death notices, where you can memorialize someone, including biographical information and a photo. Call your paper or check its website to see what the guidelines are. Online obituaries and memorials are also increasingly common (and can be very helpful in terms of notifying people of a person's passing). People reading these memorials can sign an online guest book and leave (and read others’) memories. Check legacy.com (or do a search for “online obituaries”) to see how this works. It’s never too late to remember people you have loved. • • • Dear Amy: I’m an older man married to a woman more than two decades younger than I am. We have been married for four years. We have been separated for six months because of her secret paramour. Her indiscretions have resulted in an unwanted pregnancy not once but twice. She has been unfaithful throughout the entire marriage. Recently, through her confessions, I’ve learned that she had a fling with a member of our church, who has attempted to befriend me. She can’t explain her atrocious sexual behavior; however, she acknowledges that she has a problem. She has not attempted to seek professional help. I have suggested and made appointments for marriage counseling, but she refuses to attend. I desperately want our marriage to work because I love her and I believe in the sanctity of marriage. Nonetheless I’m confused and frustrated because we're getting nowhere fast. I recently met a beautiful lady who genuinely express-

es an interest in me, but I'm afraid to let her into my life because I’m married and I still love my wife. I need help and answers because I don’t know what to do. Please help me and/or us. —Upset Dear Upset: I can't help your wife because she didn't write to me. And I can’t tell you to finally throw in the towel on your marriage, but I’d like to urge you to seek a meeting with your pastor, who will help you define what a marriage is. It seems that you and your wife haven't really been “married,” in any but the legal sense. She certainly hasn’t been married to you. Your wife refuses counseling for her very obvious problems, but you should seek it for yourself. I agree that you shouldn’t pursue or encourage another relationship until you are legally divorced. • • • Dear Amy: I am writing in response to “Concerned Coworker.” I like the advice you provided in response; however, I feel compelled to add some information. I am a U.S. Air Force veteran, and during my time in the service, suicide was and still is a major concern in our armed forces. Annually we received inservice training on recognizing the signs for suicide risk and were taught to alert the proper personnel if we were concerned about a fellow service member. The bit of information that has stuck with me the most from those trainings is: In attempted and completed suicides, there are almost always clues laid out by the person who commits the act. And the clue they emphasized the most was somebody making a suicidal comment like the one this co-worker made to “Concerned.” The training taught us that if somebody mentions thinking of suicide, authorities need to be notified ASAP because that person may be preparing to commit the act. — Military Vet Dear Vet: Thank you so much for reinforcing the necessity to take all suicidal comments very seriously. “Concerned” was taking it seriously, and I agree that she should take her concerns to a supervisor.

CHICAGO (AP) — Come this summer there will be no more tomorrows for “Annie.” After 85 years, Tribune Media Services announced Thursday that it will cease syndication of the comic strip featuring the iconic redheaded orphan on Sunday, June 13. Instead, the company will bring Annie into the Internet age by pursuing new audiences for her in digital media and entertainment, like mobile readers and graphic novels. “I’m going to miss the girl a lot,” Jay Maeder, the strip’s writer, said Thursday. “I wrote her for 10 years. She was a fairly large part of my everyday life.” “Little Orphan Annie” made its newspaper debut on August 5, 1924, first written and illustrated by creator Harold Gray. The strip later was renamed simply “Annie,” telling tales of the spunky orphan adopted by Daddy Warbucks and joined by her lovable dog, Sandy. Annie was famous for wearing a red dress with white collar and cuffs. Over the decades she became the center of the 1930s radio program “Adventure Time with Orphan Annie,” a 1977 Broadway musical and several movies. “It is no longer a great marketplace for adventure comic strips in the daily newspapers,” said Maeder, of Houston. “It’s not surprising to me that at some point the strip would come to an end.” Less than 20 newspapers in the United States currently take the comic strip, and Tribune Media Services vice president of licensing Steve Tippie said the cost of creating the strip started to outweigh its revenue. Tippie said the company is considering future live-action and animated television and film projects for the character. “Our emphasis going forward will be on bringing her more in line with current pop culture and shaping her development as a property that appeals to children and adults on a whole new level,” Tippie said. Fans of the strip will be interested to know it promises to end with many unanswered questions. Tribune Media Services says the strip’s last panel is a cliffhanger, showing Annie caught in a tangle with the Butcher from the Balkans. Daddy Warbucks is left to mourn her loss. Unlike the Annie of stage and screen, Maeder said Gray started “Little Orphan Annie” the comic strip with dark and political themes. Maeder said he attempted to stay faithful to that legacy, for example pursuing story lines about terrorism after the Sept. 11 attacks. According to Tribune Media Services, Gray used the comic strip to express his conservative philosophies and pro-capitalism views. The first strip of “Little Orphan Annie” from 1924 shows the heroine kneeling at her orphanage bed, praying for a family and scrubbing the floor while saying, “Gee, I wish some nice folks would adopt me — then I could have a real papa and mama like other kids.” “Annie” illustrator Ted Slampyak of Bernalillo, N.M., said the character received a modern makeover about 10 years ago, leaving her signature red dress behind for jeans and a new hairdo that kept her looking like a “girl of today.” “Annie is the symbol of looking on the bright side when everything looks bad,” Slampyak said. “She’s the symbol of picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and getting back into the fight. That kind of character will always resonate with people.”
