Dear Carolyn: My father married a woman 20 years younger than he. Since he passed away two years ago at 84, his widow hasn’t invited us over to the house I grew up in, and she has had extensive work done on the house. She sent my daughter a card for her birthday, but nothing else. When my brother came to town, she was too busy with her church to see him. When my nephew visited, she dropped off cookies and a gift for his kids, but left because she didn’t want to drive in the rain. She accepts dinner invitations, always comes on Thanksgiving, and occasionally pays.
