37. I lost my Mother in 1983
Within a year I was divorced from a 9 year marriage from my college sweetheart and quit a career Federal job after 16 years in a field that was a passion.

I lost my Father in 1996 where I had taken a leave from my job and 2nd wife to live with Dad during his hospice and prepare for the Estate. This was a state away and more than 500 miles from my then residence. Four years later probate closed when I told the local lawyers I would chain myself to the courthouse and be arrested for the only time in my life with two Banker's boxes of material denied the court and expose the conspiracy by my BIL and the county Bar past President (that I fired with extreme prejudice) and how I had been handed to his former partners before I realized the situation. I was divorced (by my choice) and understood my two sisters had greed greater than respect for our parents nor care for me or my nepphews that were planned benificieries of a family land trust. My BIL was a 30 year Chief of Police in the city where may Dad passed on and his wife / my sister's best friend was our 2nd cousin, the county counsel. I lived more than 500 miles away in another state but was close to our father and everything planned and in the past was to their benefit. My Dad did not trust this BIL -Chief of Police- that was also a converted fundie and the Promise Keeper local leader in their stadium heyday. I made excuses to Dad (let it run its course) and I was wrong. This event changed my life.
