 I just spoke with my father this morning and he told me that my step mother is dying. I have no love for the woman, so I feel guilty for not feeling worse about it. I am more worried about my father. Does anyone have on opinion on how I should handle this?

Just be there for him. Help handle the final arrangements, field phone calls, etc. You may not love her, but you love him and let that show.

Thanks, I will do what I can, unfortunantly, my dad is in Florida and I am in Hawaii. But that is awesome advice.

 Are you able to go be with your  father during this time? He needs your support. Just having you beside him, to help keep his spirits up. you being there will give him a reason to grab some lunch and dinner.  You don't have to be a fan of your step mom, just listen to your dad, and offer "um-hmm"'s now and again. She is that one person he's used to seeing everyday, and will be adjusting to a new way of living. Maybe the two of you can get outside and take some walks.
