In general, do you answer personal emails?

Not talking about spammy or long rambling missives, just the kind that says "thinking about you. Here's a little news, what's up with you these days?"

I'm not a phone talker and never have been, nor do I write personal notes any more because my hands hurt a lot. But I do want to stay in touch with a few people who live far away. Nothing more than a friendly hello email once or twice a year. But for a while now, I don't even get acknowledgements of any kind. In every case, I know the email address is still good. I realize that we all get a huge amount of non-personal email, but I still at least scan for things from friends and family. Although not everything calls for a response, for those that do I do at least say something.
