you are such sensitive man. I don't even keep my ex-girl friends mails. anyway, not many letter wrote in hands nowadays, so it is rare thing to keep mails. but it is really nice thing to try to keep all the memories, sad or happy. good for u

I actually keep old letters as well! i even have a whole box of them and they go way back when i was in grade school. My biggest collection of letters and notes is probably during high school. i studied at an exclusive catholic school for girls and we annually hold a Recollection. It's customary to solicit recollection letters (for those who's not familiar with this, it basically contains warm wishes of being a 'renewed' Christian or if they have comments about you (good or bad),etc). I usually get one from the whole class plus friends and colleagues from and outside of school. My most valued letters come from my childhood friends and they used to write me a lot back in high school and college. Everytime, i clean up my room and come across these letter, i would re-read them and good memories comes rushing in.

Well, I like this discussion. I also keep a lot of old letters from my friends and I don't have the heart to throw them. I always remember the days that I was young when I re-read them.

Hello walnutbrownie. I also keep some very old letters of my friends in my drawer. Sometimes I read them and feel that they are so dear to me. I love reading them as they remind me of my good old days.
