She starts a new job on campus and is in intensive training this weekend and starts Monday, the day of the funeral. My DH was upset that she said couldn't get out of training on Sunday for the wake at least, but truth is, if she misses training she will be behind in everything and might even lose her job. This job is a fantastic and necessary opportunity for her. The experience will be key, and she will be saving to buy a car to commute next year. When I called her to see if she could miss the last training session, she began to cry and said, "I can't make these decisions!". My DH was pressuring me to find out her schedule, so that's when I called and she got upset. It is a job in computers.
What would you tell the relatives? (some of which we do not have a good relationship with) A few words to say that will diffuse the fact that even though her college is close by, she is unable to be there.
