It is not a question. Simply a statement
ok
cmagnum did you know that if an adult child does not have guardianship or power of attorney they can just walk away?
And many do, and others, like me, just can't seem to find the doorknob.
I didn't know that, but I do know that some states have filial responsibility laws like Alaska, Kentucky, New Jersey, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Utah, California, Maryland, North Dakota, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Ohio, Virginia, Delaware, Mississippi, Oregon, West Virginia, Georgia, Montana, Pennsylvania.

Good luck in finding the doorknob.
