I think it is hard when the head of a family dies. My mom was always the person that organized get togethers whether they were a dinner or a holiday picnic. When she died 10 years ago things changed. Nobody stepped up to take her place. I'm the oldest daughter but did not want to do it and I guess nobody else wanted to either. We have not had a big family picnic since she died. My sil, and I both split who had

Hi Carol,

I think you have a really good chance to have a decent relationship with DH's family.
