Ok, I know this sounds strange, but I'm going to my high school class reunion in a couple of weeks and I can't remember who has lost parents and who hasn't, who's divorced, married, etc. There may also be some things I don't know about. I don't want to ask, "so, how are your parents doing?" if they have lost their parents, and at the same time I don't want them to think I'm ignoring their loss if it's happened fairly recently. It's a really small town, so there were only 30 people in my class. I don't live there now, but when I do go back I find that I don't recognize a lot of people that I should and I don't remember a lot of things that I should. Some of my classmates still live there or apparently keep on top of the news somehow, and when I talk to them I have no idea what they are talking about or refering to. Any advice about how I should handle this without keeping my mouth shut the whole time?
My mom grew up in a small town where everyone knows everyone, she hasn't lived there is YEARS, but her mom and sister still do and for as long as I can remember my mom has called my grandma every Friday and gotten all the gossip and called my aunt every Sunday and gotten all the gossip. My mom still knows everything about everyone in that town, lol. So, I know what you mean about small towns, but I'm not sure, maybe just ask "how are you and your family doing these days?" and then they can fill you in on everything, yet it doesn't sound like you have "forgotten" any of their news.
