Grandma's "Best Friend" Was More Than Just A Friend

There are 24 comments on the story from Apr 2, 2013, titled Grandma's "Best Friend" Was More Than Just A Friend. In it, reports that:

Dear Prudence: My grandmother passed away recently, and as my mother and I were cleaning out her house I came across a box of photos, letters, and other mementos. I haven't shown my discovery to anyone because it's a shocking revelation that would forever change the way my (very conservative) mom, aunts, and uncles remember their mom. It turns out that "Maude," who also passed on a few years ago, was much more to grandma than a close friend. Although everyone in the family knew that they were childhood friends, we had no idea that they were lovers. It seems they both got married to conceal their true sexuality and lived their secret double life together for over 50 years. It makes me so sad that Grandma felt she had to live that way pretty much her entire life. And it also hurts that much more whenever I hear my mom, aunts, and uncles using homophobic slurs at family gatherings. Should I ever let them know what I found?

Hopefully all your dead gay and lesbian relatives and ancestors (and don't kid yourself, you have some) will come to you by night and haunt you. Maybe they can curse you from beyond the grave too.
You've watched too many episodes of "Long Island Medium".

(And yes, I'm from Long Island, recently arrived in Arizona about a year ago, and the house I owned and lived in for 25 years on Long Island had ghosts who would appear from time to time.)
