sshort Posted August 10, 2004 Report Share Posted August 10, 2004 When my father died last year I remember saying I have no regrets. My older sister however is living with guilt and she is the one person who is having the hardest time.She was very close with dad. They lived in different cities and did not see him much. Maybe three times a year in the last 4 years. My younger sister and I lived in the same city as my parents at the time of dads death. SO there may be some resentment there as we saw much more of him. anyway he loaned her some money to buy a car. she told him she would pay him back he told her not to rush as he was in no hurry. About two weeks before he died he hounded her to go do some yard work at his house where she lived. They had a house there as well as here. She was in charge of looking after that house. so she was busy and never got around to it and it came to a point where he would say.. I don't know why she hasn't done it yet.. and then she did not answer her phone as she felt bad for not doing it.. then he died. she did not get here in time. He was gone too fast. So now she cannot get past the fact that she owed him money and avoided him. I know she was his favorite. I have tried to tell her that. She must know it deep down. What can I do to help her get over her guilt. I know if he could speak to her he would say.. its ok don't worry about it anymore.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
