Letter: Our old friend

Re “A friend, not a pile of rocks” (Monitor letter, May 7):

Thank you, Peter Daley. I ditto what you said. I am a retired Department of Transportation worker. All of us who worked many years around the Old Man of the Mountain, surveying Interstate 93, considered it a friend, not just a pile of rocks.

I can understand a "familiar landmark" such as the buoy that lets you know you've navigated to the correct channel or something like that. But doesn't a "friend" have to reciprocate your feelings? Even a tiny bit? The Old Man can't fit any rational description of a "friend" any more than a favorite cloud formation (which is similarly gone forever).
