Their Loss, Not Mine.I have two brothers and one sister I know from childhood. We lived together and they got grown enough to move on their own ways.
I'm in contact with my big sister, but she lives thousands of miles away. We talk maybe every other month on the phone and e mail.
My oldest brother seemed to have vanished. My last contact with him was by phone as he pleaded with me to support him against my sister to be executor to my grandfathers estate and will. That was back in 1998. I miss him and think of him a lot. He was the only one after I ran away from home, to try to bring me back to the " normal " life.
My other brother who is older than me but younger than the other two......he's always hated me. He was cruel to me as a kid, and I think because he resented me and my father who he blamed for the split of their father and our mother.
He lives 100 miles from me. I couldn't care less that he wants no contact with me. Blood is not thicker than water.
I have another half sister and two half brothers........met the sister once. No loss there.
