dearmargaretDear Margaret: I've been estranged from my sister for the past 14 years. I found out a few months ago that I have a life threatening illness. My family takes grudge holding to the level of an art form, and my sister and I are no exceptions. However, if I don't regain my health, I worry that I'll leave this earth without a clear conscience. I don't have a particular religious affiliation and I'm not sure about my beliefs in a divine being. I simply don't want to depart with unresolved issues. I've called my sister on a few occasions and left messages each time, but she will not respond. Any ideas on how I can make this right?
