I always wanted to recieve a telegram. I saw them sent in movies and retrospectives that people from the oval office to Hollywood getting news or congratulations. I even sent one once. I sent my mom a telegram for mother's day. Thought that it would be different than just the normal card in the mail. But after decades of sending telegrams, Western Union is done. They will still be in business with money transfers but in the age of cell phones, email, and intstant messages the telegram had become obsolete. I'm saddened.
