    Hi Rachel,

    I am sorry to read that both of your relatives are terminally ill. It is very natural to want to offer as much support and practical help as you can and there are things you can do for your family even though you live a distance away. Making time to speak on the phone and listen to their worries or concerns is a great way to support your relatives when you can't physically be with them.
