I called my Mom the other night. I asked her what she had for dinner. Her response"I have not had dinner yet. i am waiting for Earl. He is late and must have stopped off at church" Earl is my dad who died 10 years ago. Do I say Mom Dad died 10 years ago or do I let her sit there waiting for him to "show up" . this is happening more and more I don't know what is the best thing to do for her.
