Thank you, Louise. My sister has hung on much better than I have, but that’s because my father has turned into a spiteful, hateful, selfish creature who gives me flashes of the worst days of my youth (and how stupid does *that* feel when I’m 60 years old?). He cut off all communications with me and my wife after she “stole” his car (returned it on lease to the dealership when he failed his driving test twice). My sister is still trying to help them, but I have given up.
