Thank you all who commented on my Oct. 17 Editor’s View on dealing with our Generation Y, Z and millennial family members. It is good to know I am not alone in my frustration with our younger generation not wanting “things” — instead wanting experiences.
Since that Editor’s View, conversations have continued with the fact our children and grandchildren will not want our things when we are gone.
I am a person who sees the value of and appreciates the connection with things from my grandparents that my youngest has already said he will not want.
