Sorry if this is long.
My aunt passed away this morning. Her daughters (my cousins) are so young, one is a sophomore in high school and the other is in her first year of college. We haven't seen them much over the past dozen years or so because of a nasty divorce between my uncle (my mom's brother) and my aunt. I don't know exactly what happened because I was a teenager. I guess things were bad enough that my aunt left sole custody of my 15 year old cousin to her 18 year old sister.
Since my aunt and uncle divorced, we always invited my aunt and cousins to family events, but they never came. I really want to help these girls out and let them know they have a huge family here to support them (they have no other family in the US).
I don't know why, but my aunt refused to see even my grandma (my uncle's mom, not hers) who flew into town just to see her and help out. So I don't even know if we should go to the funeral.
