    How is Beth doing? How are you guys holding up? My offer is still open if you need me.

    My dad is one of 9 kids. I never even met most of them. When my grandfather moved to Florida my parents followed him, to make sure he was safe and had a local relative if he needed one. My one Aunt moved down later as well. The rest stayed up north. Two had to, one was in jail one on parole. The rest? I have no idea. Now that my grandfather is older and less independent it's my Dad and my Aunt who are there for him. I would be as well if I could get to where he is, but lack of transportation is a big issue for us. Then there's the rift between my Father and I, and I'm not sure how to fix that.

    •  Well hon, I think that case is appropriate (14+ / 0-)

      in Jack's and Daddy's case, we are talking siblings worth millions of dollars.  One major family member who is one of the world's largest producers and another in the Banking industry.  In my husband's case, there is a sibling named top 5 corporations in Forbes magazine.  None of those people act like we exist until funerals or reunions.  They should at least give him a call on veterans day or birthday and there is no reason for the ignoring other than class warfare.  My daddy same thing.  Only they cried and moaed but sure didn't offer to pick up any expense.  I call it like I see it.   I see it as low class.

      Thanks for your comment.   People who are not Mitt Romneys are not expected to do much but the Richie Rich's out there screaming about big government while ignoring their own flesh and blood is just ridiculous.  I don't have a friend or family member I would not be there for even in diversity but then there are people with honor and those without.
