Dear Abby: I’m writing regarding “Open-Minded in the South” (Nov. 24), the Christian woman who’s a supporter of the LGBTQ community. She’s concerned about her boyfriend’s mother’s inability to see her viewpoint and the effect it would have on future kids. I experienced something nearly identical.

When the gentlemanly piano tuner peered into our upright, he exclaimed in surprise. According to the log inside, the last time our piano had been tuned was 1982, by the man who had trained him, and has since passed into the great beyond. I was 7 that year, and have no recollection of the tuner in question; I barely remember the lessons that my mother had arranged for me, my younger brother and older sister, which our parents must have seen as part of an assimilated American upbringing, like signing us for Scouts or getting a Christmas tree.
