My dad was a successful car and truck salesman in Fort Worth for 46 years.

As a child, I hardly saw him except on Sunday. The hours he worked were very long during the week, leaving before I woke up and returning home after dark.

Sunday was our family day when we went to church or out to lunch or, with luck, to a Fort Worth Cats baseball game or to visit friends or relatives.

To pass a law under which dealerships would open on Sundays makes no sense (See: "Is it time for auto dealership blue laws to hit the road?", March 3) and would damage the family relationship.

Children of car salesmen and managers need their parents together on Sundays, so let's please keep it that way.
