About 3 years ago my son-in-law took offence at something I said and is now not speaking to me. Unfortunately I have no idea what it was I supposedly said and neither does my daughter. My son-in-law will not tell me or my daughter what it was, which has lost him my respect. This also reduces my opportunities to see my daughter and my grandchildren. Was this his goal all along? He is on a list with only one name on it. How about you?
