Dear Kimmiegirl

Welcome to this forum on behalf of Sue Ryder. I am so sorry you are feeling the loss of your sister so badly. I have read Daisyrose’s post to you and she is right, go easy on yourself. You have a lot of family history there which wasn’t sorted at the time, and we all know the longer things are left the harder it is to face them.
