Is it that rare?

I just saw a post where a woman said she didn't know when her mom died and people jumped all over her.

I didn't think it was that big of a deal.  I know my mom died in the last decade.  That's about it.  I also know she died in October.

I don't know what year she died.  What's the big deal?

Because most of us love our mothers and can't imagine not knowing when she passed.

I understand if you were friends with your mom, but if you weren't close; I wouldn't expect someone to remember, you know?

I don't know. I know when my mom, dad and son died. I know the year, the date, the day and the minute(except for my mom, I found her passed away. I know the exact time I found her, it was on the clock next to her bed.)

I would say it is rare. However you thought it was such a big deal you made a post about it.

I know my grandma died about a week after her birthday. I can not remember year or date. I suck at dates and years, even my own kids birthdays, the younger ones, I have to count to figure out the year.

I would think it's unusual, but maybe that depends on the relationship.  I know the dates my dad and my husband died, but I couldn't tell you the year my grandmother died without guessing.

I get that, but would you expect someone who doesn't talk to their mom to remember?
