My uncle passed away today one of his many diagnosises was a traumatic brain injury. He died today cause his heart gave out. He has been sick for a long time. Emphysema, had heart surgery 8 times in the last 4 years, kept having strokes at least twice a year since 2007.
And i am going to be seen in the families eyes as being evil. I can't afford to go up, we just went to michigan for christmas. And the funeral is in michigan. I live in mississippi. I know my step dad wants me to be there but I can't afford to go. Plus willy will be missing school and therapies. He can't afford to miss more than he already has missed due to the holidays. I believe willy's therapies are important and so is his schooling. He is making leaps and bounds right now, i don't want him to miss more than is absolutely necessary. Plus i wasn't close to this uncle. I feel bad that i can't go and i know the family will be angry with me but going to a funeral isn't worth breaking the bank account for. It costs near $1,000 to go round trip and 2 days driving to get up there.
I won't fly with willy. and the train costs just about the same anyways
