my dad died

He died 39 days ago. I just found out tonight.

The woman he married made sure our family didn't know.

Want to know how we found out? A friend of my uncle's called to give his condolences.

He died of cancer. He found out he had cancer November 2013.

First of all, Miller, sending warm thoughts and prayers your way.

Secondly, how in the world can someone be so mean as to not let you know that your dad died? That is so awful!

I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. What a horrible way to learn of his passing. I know you have nothing to do with "woman" but how the heck could she not have called anyone in your family. What a BIT**.

Remember your father in your own special way.

What a rotten human.

Sorry you had to find out in such an awful way.

May you only remember the good things about your father...

So sorry for your loss and hearing it through your uncle so long after. I assume you didn't have a close relationship with your dad's wife but that doesn't excuse her from telling you.

It's terrible that his wife didn't let his family know. I don't understand how someone could be so uncaring. I can't even imagine how you must feel right now. Saying a prayer for you and the rest of your family.

Even if relationships are strong, common human decency would dictate telling you when your Dad was sick, when he began to fail, and when he died.

You have my sympathies!

I am sad for your loss and that you were not able to grieve in a more normal time frame.

You did get notified before the 40th day after death. I had an interesting 40 day celebration with a loved one and I knew nothing about the 40 th day.

I am so sorry about it all. Your Father's illness and passing. His wife's inhumanity toward you and the rest of your Dad's family.

Thank goodness for the friend of your Uncle.

I realize the shock is so new, but I hope you are able to connect with more of your family to share memories of your Dad. It doesn't matter whether or not you have a so-called formal memorial, but gathering family to grieve together may help you all.

Oh, Miller. I'm so sorry. (My mom went though something similar with her brother and sisters not telling her that her dad had died, a year after we moved across country away from them. We were poor, and they though she couldn't attend the funeral, so it wasn't an urgent issue to let her know. It was doubly bad, because my mom and grandpa had gotten into an argument right before we moved. The fight was their last conversation.) Family can be difficult! Again, I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry for your loss, Miller. Can't imagine what that must feel like to find out the way you did. Cancer is an evil, evil disease. Sounds like his wife is evil, too. Who does that?

First of all, please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your father. The manner in which you found out, so long after his passing is simply unbelievable. It must double your grief!

I am always amazed that people can do this to one another. In spite of her relationship with you, he will always be your father. Nothing changes that, even death. You deserved to know as it happened, even if your relationship with him was strained due to the circumstances. I am so sorry for your troubles.

So, so, so sorry. That is the worst of the worst kind of person. I hope that you don't have any reason to have any contact with her again.

I am so sorry for your loss! The loss of your father is difficult enough to face, and the fact you didn't find out until much later makes it even more difficult. I am disgusted by that woman's behavior, and I'm sorry she did that to you and your family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. (((HUGS)))

Miller,

I am so sorry that you lost your dad and you were robbed of the opportunity to be there with him at the end. I can't imagine what his wife hoped to gain from keeping you from knowing. My heart goes out to you and I will pray for you to have peace as you go on with your life. It must be very painful for you to think about.

I'm so very sorry for the loss of your father. I'm sorry, too, for the circumstances surrounding how and when you found out. That just doesn't make any sense.
