Greybeard; I understand where you are coming from.
I will always love my kids, but to be frank, I am tired of
being kick in the rear. Four kids, two out two in. One daughter(JW)
stay in contact, the other one A hard core JW, would not
give me the time of day. In the last 15yrs. I have spoken
to her twice. The first time about 10yrs. ago, she ask if
I could co-sign for A house for her and her husband, no
word from her five years previous. The second time about
seven years ago, I was selling my condominium due to health
problem(lost job). She call me up to see if they could buy
my condo. Not buy it but to take over the payments. No visit
while I was in the hospital or call. As A Witness I did not raise
my kids to be so cold hearted, this is not what I taught them.
