     Sometimes an article will have a surprisingly long "keep life." In July, 2009, I received the following letter from Cyndee (to maintain her privacy, I won't publish her last name.) Here's what she wrote: 
    "In 1994, I read the article "Orphaned" in Woman's Day magazine.  I have often considered writing to Woman's Day and telling them what a powerful article that was and how much I have referred to it and passed it along in the ensuing years.  Three months after that article appeared, my father-in-law died and I found the information to be very helpful.  Since that time, I have had many friends and relatives experience the death of a parent and I copy the article (hope you don't mind) and send it along with a sympathy card.  
    I think this article should be reprinted every few years in a mass  market publication.  It is just so wonderfully written and the information is truly timeless."     Cyndee
