My niece calledd me fowm CA last night and said my oldfest nephew had doiied. Actually he had lived much longer than anyone expexted he would-almost 40- and was diagnosed with AIDS in his early 20s. My sisier is a bit oldevr than myself and lives not far from me but she hasn;t spoken to me in about 2 years. She is an active alcoholic and the family has always suspected there have been much deeper mental issues. She has been hospitalized for both ut always knows the right things to say to get released She makes up things and her son left for CA where my neice lives as he could not stand her mood swings. She is a mean drunk. Later in my nephew's life he wwould have been okay witnh seeing her on a short-term basis but stress was vey bad for his condition so he died without her having spoken to him in over 10 years. She is harrassive with a phone. My niece is going to call her at 9 am my time and I told her I wwould go and be with my sister. My sister has gone through many churches aas wwhen they discover the extent that she drinks it is not them but her she finds many things wrong with the people. The last one she attenrted are nice people and told my niece they will gladly help my sister. She has seriously attempted suicide multiple times so am asking that your thoughts be with me in choosing the right words if she even lets me in the door. Know this is ramnbling but please keep me i n your thoughts Thank you Linda

That's a tough road you must pass today and the next few days. I'm so sorry for your and your family's loss.

I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers - may God guide you to know what to say and how to help and then strengthen you to carry through with those words and loving deeds. May God's love surround and lift all of you.

Really miffed now. She lives in an apartment complex/. Knocked onher door for about 5 min but no response. She was in there as heard the phone ring and her answer. Went to the apartment management office just to check and make sure I had the right apartment- intricate winding of small strets and individual buildings. I did. Came back home and called my niece i/n CA and discoverecd she had not spoken to her yet as her phone calls are not being answered.-directly to voicemail She is going to cavll again and just tellher motheer that it is urgent that she speak with her-no details. My neice's husband is a retired Los Angeles police detective and as a last resort he willl call the Fl. authorities. My sister is extemely paranoid and might think that the knocks and calls were a status check on her. I have no authority tmake the apartment managers let me in so will just have to wait. Cannot thank all off you enough for your support

First, thanks to all of you. My niece has reached my sisrter and my sister has callled me. Ed was her only son and although his illnesxs was long he died peacefully in his sleep, ikt is a terrible blow to deefen a stable pmother let alone an unstable one. For the moment my siter is holding things together. She had been a the grocery store. She lost her driver's license long ago because of DUIs and did not do the necessary things to get it back so she has no license and no car-a plus. Know her habits though when she goes to the store most often by cab-she stocks way up on the booze. Told her I am here and would come and be with her or pick her up and bring her here-3 times definite NO not right now. She would be free to bring the booze here but she is a closet drinker and pretends no one knows. Her other kids are either in Mi. or CA so I am her only family here. She knows I am here and will do whatever is possible to ease her pain but have done what I can for today. Again, so many thanks to everyone

I'm so sorry for the loss in your family. I'm also sorry about your sister. Keep strong for her and for yourself.
Her son's death may hit her much harder as the time progresses. You will need to be strong for her, especially since you are the only one near-by.
I pray for your strength.
