In regards to Julie White’s letter to the editor of Nov. 6 (“One sibling always the caregiver”):

Boy, did she hit the nail right on the head! But, let’s start off right with this: A son is a son till he takes a wife. A daughter is a daughter for life. Or so it is in my case, my daughter being the oldest at 62. My oldest son has not said a word to me in six years. The other two ex-sons — one for one year, the other for six months — and not one of them has had the guts to broach the subjects with me.

So whatever I have — very little — will be left to my daughter. That will give them more reason to hate me. In no cases do my sons’ wives have any part of the ongoing situation. Even I don’t know why!
