Sounds like both of you are overly emotional due to grief!

Not really normal, I don't think. But then, I have never had to deal with something like that, so I honestly don't know. Im so sorry for your loss!

There is no normal. Particularly at such a time but I would say this is your and your sister's wake up call. Either y'all will pull together at such a time or pull apart. Here's y'alls chance to take a deep breath, count to ten and make a commitment to pulling together when you both need one another and for life.

You know me, I don't think there is such thing as "normal"...especially in how we act after someone we are realted to dies whether we were close to them or not.

Fighting over things regarding a recent death is always brought about by overwhelming emotions....and then exaggerated by control issues. We have that in my family because were all control jerks. But not all families do. We have a very large family, so we often have multiple speakers.

 I didnt know that your brother had died Ang! I am so sorry!!!!!!!!

I've been in plenty of situations with family fighting over things that had to do with someone's death. The best advice is to be th ebigger person and just let it go...
