Dealing with the death of close family members and loss of a friend. Dealing with betrayal; how to accept it, deal with it and move on.

Dear Rita: I understand what you're going through. I believe 'today's children' are a lot different than when I was growing up. I would not have dreamed of going a day without talking to my mother
