I did not tell anyone except close friends that I may not go to this celebration because I was keeping an open mind if indeed people followed through and sincerely contacted me. My cards to the parents and the widow were not acknowledged.
At the begining of Sept one of my daughter's texted me that a celebration would be the 28th. I figured more info would follow. Last week when I contacted my niecee for her correct address beause my card came back, she asked me if I was going to my brother's funeral. so I asked her for more information about it. She said, it might be the 29th but she was not sure. Absolutely no one extended the courtesy to let me know about my brother's service. Was it my responibility to start chasing down the informationation?
Instead, yesterday I see a post on facebook about can't wait to see everyone, getting on the ferry, etc. On my niece's post she tgged me as one of the ones getting on the ferry with her. I want to comment with the following. Because I think she should know this as well as all my kids who will see this. That no one let me know about it. I did google my brother's name and found an announcement on his website.
Please give your feedback whether ishould just do what i've always done, ignore it or say something ike this:
