My cousin's DH died 4 days ago, the day after he died, she got a phone call from a woman who said she had be seeing her DH on and off for three years and they have a 2 year old together (she knew about my cousin the whole time). Upon checking his phone records, she saw that, yes the woman's phone number would pop up a few times every few months for the past 3 years. To me, it looks like she was kind of a booty call, it doesn't seem like there was any real relationship going on, which I think is a comfort to my cousin. She wasn't even on his facebook nor did they have any mutual friends and he family didn't know about her or the child.

Anyway, the woman wanted to know when and where the funeral was. My cousin told her that  she will have security there and if they show up, she will have them escorted out. The child going isn't an issue, she is only 2 so couldn't go alone  and quite frankly wouldn't understand anyway and the other woman doesn't know anyone who is going so she could ask them to take her.

Oh also, the OW thinks she deserves part of my cousin's late DH's life insurance policy, which as he left to my cousin (they have 4 kids), the OW has no legal right to it. She MIGHT be able to get SSI for the child if she can prove the child is his, which I don't see how she can since he is dead and his name isn't even on the birth certificate.

Yes, in my world, anyone that is grieving is welcome. The drama stays elsewhere.

The funeral... Yeah, I would let her and the kid come. Funerals mean different things to different people. I would never deny someone the chance to mourn.

The life insurance policy? She has no right to that, so no.

Oh hell no! How dare this woman pull this bullshit. Your cousin is grieving and this crazy bitch wants to make it worse. I would tell her to go fuck herself.

Her ass can stay home and grieve to herself. Sorry, it is not a time I want to be embarrassed in front of my family.
