I was just on Facebook where an age 60+ cousin, a kindred soul in numerous ways and one who was the one who cared for her elder parents in spite of having other siblings including one who was very comfortable financially, posted about losing her aunt who would have been 105 next month, the last of her father's siblings. She thanked other relatives for being there, driving etc etc. She used to live in CA and moved back 1-2 years ago to MI. We're in OH and her Uncle I believe is the last uncle relative on her mother's side at 102. And I just SO felt like saying people would appreciate all your efforts more while they are still alive and can be visited!
Are you saying she was praising relatives that were rarely seen by their relatives?
Happens all the time, doesn’t it? For various reasons. It’s sad all the way around.
