DEAR ABBY: My dad died when I was young. He and Mom had a beautiful marriage. Mom was in a long relationship following his death and has been single for three years now.
DEAR ABBY: My mom recently passed away at 91. She had a great life and went peacefully at home in bed during the night.
DEAR ABBY: Once I announced my engagement, my already thin, fit mother went on a diet and lost 20 pounds.
DEAR ABBY: I am an only child who has lived at home all her life — 44 years. My father recently passed away, so now it is just Mom and me. She has become extremely clingy.
DEAR ABBY: I have been married two years, but my husband and I have been together for more than 10. We have a 3-year-old daughter who has needed a few extra doctor appointments and therapy.
