Excellent

So glad I came across this podcast! Full of great info & thank you for all the show notes & links: so helpful.

Thanks for concise overview

Subs and I have been buffeted with enormous, sometimes contradictory or not well-suited, information regarding the care and support of our parents and step parents. Sharing these decisions with step-sibs adds a tiny thread of tension that had not come into matters for the last almost 50 years.
This is a good tool. I look forward to understanding the content of your previous and subsequent podcasts.
