Dear Carol: My dad and I were always emotionally close even after I became an adult. Three years ago, I moved 500 hundred miles away due to my husband’s work, so it became harder to communicate since Dad wasn’t good with technology. I used to visit every month which helped, but of course, COVID distanced us. Dad’s now in hospice care. Since we’re all vaccinated, I’m cleared to go, but my sister and Dad’s wife continue to hold me off. They say he’s still at risk even though I said that I’d wear a mask. Since he and I can’t communicate directly, I don’t know how he feels about this. I don’t want to alienate the family, but don’t I have a right to see my dad? – PW
