What are siblings to each other? Are they friends? are they more? Or is friendship too high a word for a relationship that was never voluntary? Is a sibling an obligation? A liability? Is it a moral issue? Is estrangement from a sib worse than ending a friendship because the two of you have nothing in common any more? And it's not worth the drama anymore? How many siblings unravel their ties when the parents die? Is it common? I'm without a compass here. I remember this feeling when mom died. What is one supposed to do? Where's the path?
