Utile black I A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN DEAR MISS BROOKFIELD: Until a year ago, my parents lived in another state and we saw them infrequently. Dad was retired but he was always busy, puttering around the house, making minor repairs or gardening. He was reluctant to sell the house, but mom eventually convinced him and they moved here, where they rent a small apartment. Mom is a big help and she is involved with my children to a great extent. But we're worried about dad. He has no friends. We tried to involve him in community activities but without success. He is fond of the grandchildren but doesn't take the interest in them that mom does. Lately, he sleeps most of the day. Can you offer any suggestions? J. L., New Haven, Conn. DEAR J. L.: Yes. First have him checked by a doctor to rule out a health problem as a cause of his lethargy. Once this is done, you, but more important, your mother should talk to a skilled counselor. The move closer to you has buoyed your mother with a new role as grandmother because you need her and the grandchildren need her. But your dad, who has been reluctantly uprooted, has been left out in the emotional cold. Before, he had a role as "man of the house." Now, no one really "needs" him. His message is loud and clear: he has been put into limbo. So he feigns this state with the closest thing to it: sleep. Trying to involve him in community activities or "make-work" chores and errands will not solve the problem. He needs to return to the emotional mainstream, whore his life will have meaning and purpose. His present problem may be the culmination of a long-standing one. MR. AND MRS.

My childhood sweethert was the boy next door. I knew. I would marry him from the day we enrolled together in kindergarten. He was stricken at 15 with a mysterious malady and died a few days later. It took me two years to recover from his death. Finally I became interested in another young man - this time, the handsomest and sweetest boy in town. Our friendship grew into love and I felt so lucky to have found someone who could replace my childhood sweetheart. Two weeks before high school 'graduation this boy was drowned in a surfing accident. I was so torn apart the doctor kept me under sedation for three days. I was not permitted to attend the funeral. Eight months ago my cousin was shipped to Vietnam. He showed my picture to a buddy from South Carolina. His buddy wrote to me and sent me his picture. He looked very much like my childhood sweetheart. After several months of letter writing, he asked me to fly to Honolulu to meet him for R. and R. I Did. We both relized it was more than just a paper romance. It was love. After a heavenly five days we said good-by. He promised to send an engagement ring within two weeks. The ring arrived - a beautiful diamond - on July 21st. Five days later I received word that he was killed in action. Why do these terrible things always happen to me? I am afraid to fall in love again. I seem to jinx every man whose life touches mine. Please help me make some sense out of this. I am -� Losing My Grip With Reality DEAR FRIEND: You've bad more grief in your first 20 years than most people experience in a lifetime. I can provide no answers, but I can tell you this: You have proven to yourself that you can live through anything. Apparently you possess an indomitable spirit and a buoyancy reserved for the few. Your refusal to be beaten down by tragedy and misfortune shows extraordinary courage. Rose Kennedy is another such person. You are in excellent company. * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I cried when I read the letter from the grandma who said her daughter-in-law (former school teacher) rewrote all her grandson's letters so they would be perfect - no mistakes. Something similar happened in my life and I will never forgive myself for being such a perfectionist. I insisted on filling out our son's baby book because my husband wasn't very good at spelling or grammar. When the boy was four months old his daddy died. Now I wish I hadn't been so particular. I am heartbroken that I did not let his daddy write things down in his own way - misspelled words, clumsey phrases and all. The book would have been a treasure. -Smart Too Late In Elizabethtown DEAR TOO LATE: Here's your letter, in the hope that it will open the eyes of others for whom it is not too late. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I feel foolish asking you for advice- because I'm old enough to be your mother but I do need help. It's the man next door. He is 76 and frisky as a young buck. I used to let him come over and help me with the chores but when he got fresh last winter I told himi not to come over anymore. But Ann, he comes anyway and he's getting on my nerves. Yesterday I was gardening and he sneaked up behind me and kissed me on the back of the neck. I told him to leave or I'd telephone his wife. He said, "She wouldn't believe you. I haven't kissed her in 15 years." What can I do about this crazy old fool? -Olivia DEAR LIWY: I thought it was all sort of cute until you mentioned his wife. Now I think he's a dirty old man. I also think you enjoy the attention. If you REALLY want to get rid of him go into the house and lock the door behind you.
