Someone please tell me that there are one of these people in every family! I'm about to go against my mothers wishes and completely right off her entire family, except for my Grandmother. My mother was always very close with her family. Her sibling, aunts and cousins were a big part of her life. She was the nuetual one that everyone always adored. She managed to stay out of the fueds and remain everyones faviorate. I don't know how she did it but she did. I called my mothers older brother today to invite him to my daughters birthday party. He has been an active part in my life and my daughters life. He is fueding with my mothers sister. Apparently it has been going on since the two were children. They just hate eachother, but when my mother got sick four years ago, my aunt moved back to NY from CA where she had been living for thirty years. My uncle remained as civil with her as possible for as long as he could. A week after my mother died they exploded into this battle and haven't spoken since. It wasn't unexpected. Anyways, today he tells me that my Aunt is telling the family that she doesn't care for me because I didn't do enough to help my mother while she was dieing. I almost lost my lunch. How dare she say such a thing!! I can honestly say that the extent of her helping my mother was basically a phone call now and again. I was horribly upset by this, started balling on the phone. My uncle couldn't understand why I was so upset. I have never involved myself in the family fueds, I always kept my distance, how dare she drag my name through the dirt two months after my mothers death!! Why do people do this? My uncle made me promise not to bring it up because it would upset my Grandmother. Now I have to wonder what everyone else thinks of me. I didn't make the promise to him, it will come up to my mothers sister, and she's not going to like what I say.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
