    Sorry about your loss of Katrin sometimes difficult relations make for even stronger ties. I also pray for your grandaughter. I hope someday she will come to know that you wanted her and will be therefor her. During this season the gift you can give yourself and the world is that of forgiveness remembering that you did the best you could at the time. Dr. Gloria
