After 23 years I have become very close with my stbx family. My family lives far away and his was near so they became "mine" in a sense. Received a call that an Uncle of stbx was in the hospital dying from cancer. The stbx asked me not to go there because I am not family anymore. My daughter is not interested in going to the hospital and seeing him. This is certinally something that I hadn't thought about. On one hand I want to be respectful and not casue waves because of the circumstances. On the other, I love these people very much. How do you know the "right" thing to do, how will I know the "right" thing when it is time to go to the funeral? I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on navigating this issue.
