NEW YORK (AP) — The election is over -- but the divisions created among loved ones by the bitter campaign may, in some cases, never be healed.

Mothers and sons, sisters and brothers, friends who are now unfriended — it's been tough for some on opposing sides who must now figure out the way forward.

One woman in Manhattan says she was in tears after her father called Thursday to say he won't be coming for Thanksgiving. Leigh Anne O'Connor was a Clinton supporter -- but her dad, along with one of her sisters and other relatives, supported Trump. And she says her father got into it on Facebook with a friend who will be at Thanksgiving, and that he also read something her daughter wrote against family members who supported Trump.

In Los Angeles, Tonya McKenzie said she expects her big brother to show up for turkey despite their political differences. She has always looked up to him but anticipates a new level of "awkwardness" after he went on a few social media rampages disparaging Hillary Clinton.

A Clinton supporter in Oregon says she loves her older sister, and always looked up to her -- but that her sister's apparent support for Trump "kind of takes that away."
