I have an older daughter, age 35, that has told me she does not want to be associated with me. Some of you have experienced separation from a child - the continuous and eternal pain. For 20 years, I have tried to reconcile our problems, but she is not interested. She has told me to remove all public references of her on my webpage. She has many very impressive achievements. She is an attorney.
