My brother and our Mom had a falling out last summer, and since then, she will not speak to him, nor let him come to visit us from Florida. My brother is unmarried and is 56 years old. Mom is 83; she has had two strokes, so has good days and bad days as far as mental capacity. Where my brother is concerned, however, she is adamant and stubborn. He has sent her a card with an apology and she did not respond.
Now, he has asked me for help in writing her a letter of apology. I am stumped. The rest of the family, especially all of his nieces, miss him and want to see him. We cannot afford to travel to see him. Our opportunities were always when he visited our parents. He can’t afford to travel on his own, so he would visit when my parents invited him. My dad wants to see him also, but my mother is immovable on this point.
Any suggestions on how to help my brother write this letter would be MUCH appreciated, as well as your prayers!
