We are all we have now. Our parents are gone, and though we range in age from mid-thirties to mid-forties, it's frightening to be orphans, to have no-one to turn to for advice or guidance. We do our best to help and support each other. When my sister and brother bought their land, she called me in a panic about owing the bank so much money, fearing the payments and all the things that could go wrong. I reassured her and I could hear her calm down on the phone. Usually she's the one calming me down. She is fearless.
