My uncle died and I didn't even know he was sick

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My uncle died five days ago. I just found out yesterday. The funeral is today and I won't be able to attend. I didn't even know he had lung cancer. Nobody even bothered to call and tell me he died. I just happened to talk to my SIL and she mentioned the funeral. He was one of my favorite uncles. I can't believe nobody told me.

I had an uncle who just has passed on and I know it can be hard. Love and peace to you. I am sorry your family did not let you know.

Oh sweetie, I am so sorry no one told you. But do find a special way to honor him, in your own way. A funeral is an important rite, but missing it doesn't mean you can't do something special that would have really meant something to your uncle, KWIM? There are zillions of ways to go about it, and the right thing will come to you. He knows you love him, I promise....
