I know this sounds very self centered, guess I just need some feedback. My nephew was killed in a motorcycle accident last week, he was 22. My ex made no attempt to contact myself and our 3 children (teens) to let us know. I found out thru a co-worker as I now live out of state. I contacted my sister & brother in law and expressed our sorrow, sent the flowers for the services and my daughter sent flowers to her aunt. Then was told in a round about way thru a friend(?) the ex's family didn't want us to know about this horrific event. How do you tell teenagers that the family they have known all their lives that in times of dispair they want nothing to do with them? I know grief is very private and personal, and I respect that. I guess I always thought that during the worst families would put aside their differences and be there for each other. I guess I should accept the fact that we have been eviserated.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
