DEAR ABBY: I’m a mom of three young adults, a daughter and two sons. The oldest recently married. My youngest is finishing his last two years of college out of state.
DEAR ABBY: My father passed away a few months ago. My brother lives out of state, so emptying the house has been up to me.
DEAR ABBY: Since I moved eight years ago, my son, “Jim,” has visited me only once, and that’s because I gave his son my car. I rarely hear from him, and when I have visited, we barely talk.
DEAR ABBY: I thought my son and I were close. Recently, I learned that his girlfriend had a miscarriage.
DEAR ABBY: My son was murdered four years ago by a supposed friend. Despite a 10-year sentence, the murderer was released from prison this month.
