Dear Carol

Worried about grandma since gramps died


I'm worried about my grandma. I think she's been lonely since my grandfather passed away. Is there anything I can do? 

Dear Worried Granddaughter,
Instead of worrying about your grandmother, do something sweet for her—call her, write to her, bake her some cookies. Meet her for a manicure or a weekend matinée. I’m sure she misses your grand-father, but your love means a lot to her right now so make sure she knows you care. It’s OK, too, to talk to her about your grandfather.
