You may remember I posted earlier this month about my Dad losing his battle with cancer. To our shock on December 22nd my father in law had a bad heart attack and passed away. The week before he and his wife were on a cruise and the paramedics had to help him 3 times because he collapsed I believe he had at least one stroke. This news of my father in laws death is shocking to all of us. He had diabetes and wasn't taking care of himself for years and we knew his diabetes was getting worse.
It's a shame that my husband and I had to stop talking to my father in law two years ago. He married a woman who to put it kindly wasn't very nice and we decided that it was best for our children that this woman not be in their lives. We told my father in law that we love him and want him in ours and our childcare's lives but instead of wanting to have anything to do with his grandchildren he choose to ignore them and be with his lying and mean wife.
My husband and I have forgiven him for what he did to us and we are planning on going to his funeral on Monday. It is sad because some people in our family are taking it upon themselves to judge and be cruel to others. My brother and sister in law have not called us until several days after my father in law died my husband found in the newspaper information about his fathers funeral. I called my mother in law, who made excuses for her oldest son and his wife. My husband was angry so he posted on his facebook page about him not being told about his fathers funerals time and location. Then about an half an hour later my brother in law called. I should mentioned I called there house phone several times.
So now I am angry and really looking forward to seeing my father in laws wife and my rude brother and sister in law.
*** Edited to say that I have apologized to my brother in law for calling him rude, he called my husband last night and tried to work things out. My sister in law saw this post and got upset I'm guessing because I called her rude. My brother in law called this post an attack, it wasn't meant as an attack but simply for me to discuss what happened. If anyone thinks I am wrong I would be happy to see why and apologize if I am wrong. So now my husband is furious because my sister in law refuses to apologize or at the least write something on Facebook to put us at ease but she won't. Instead she is still posting comments on Facebook about all this despite the agreement my husband and brother in law have to NOT do that. I feel bad for my husband because this is an attack on him and he's decided he's not going to his father's funeral because of all of this. ***
