Quandary ??
May 8, 2011
Hello everyone, I have been overseas visiting my daughter for a few weeks so have sadly got very out of touch. I returned yesterday & then during the night we had the sad news that an Aunt died in her sleep. The funeral is to be next week as it will take this long to gather all the family together as we are all very spread out.

My m in law & f in law recently moved into care together -she is in high care & he is in low care. Our quandary is do we take them to the funeral? My m in law is the only living sibling left of this aunt & they have been very close until Aunt's dementia became so bad that she didn't know anybody, & then they were in different care facilities in different states. We know that they will both want to go to the funeral but it would be a big day for them involving 1 & 1/2 hour's travel on either side of the funeral. They have just settled into their care facility......

Obviously we will have to tell them about Aunt's death & tomorrow my husband is flying to them to take them out to lunch & tell them in person. They will want to go but my m in law will soon forget anyway.... What do people think?
