Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: I have a needy family Steve, I am a 61-year-old woman. I have always tried to help my family members. I am the second oldest cousin of all these younger family members. Every time they need something, here they come. When they are homeless, here they come, but they bring no money to help with bills. Well, I’m sick of it. How much is a person supposed to do? When they have babies, here they come. Steve, I am tired. I’ve been taking care of others most of my life. I have no life. I am a vibrant 61-year-old. I would like to find me a nice man, but can’t for these fools. How do I get rid of them without feeling guilty?
