Texas native should go home again


Dear Amy: I married a U.S. Marine and moved away from my small Texas hometown when I was 18 years old.

My husband was a wonderful man, and we traveled a lot, which meant that I never got back home to see my family.

My mother, father, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and aunt and uncles are all still there in my hometown.

My husband and I were never blessed with children. He has now passed away.

My question is — how do I reconnect with my family now? They talk to me on Facebook, but when I ask for addresses or phone numbers — it’s crickets!

I call my mom and she doesn’t pick up, so what should I do?

I thought I was doing the right thing by supporting my husband and going where he went, but apparently, they don’t feel that way.

What do you think I should do?

— Without Family

Dear Without: You don’t mention how long you’ve been away from your hometown, but I infer that you have not touched down for a quick visit in many years.

Nor, it seems, did you ever invite or host any family members in any of the many places where you lived and traveled.
