    I am sorry on the loss of your father. I met him in July when my mother-in-law introduced him to my husband. His last holiday on this earth was spent with my family at my house on Thanksgiving. The last of saw him was on Saturday before he was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. My mother in law took care of him up until the time she convinced him to contact his sons and then the family barred her from seeing him. I can understand your reaction since you have never met her and she is a total stranger. However, you should be ashamed of yourselves for not letting her know he passed away. She found out by seeing his obituary on Facebook on Thursday at 3:00 p.m.. I say it again Shame on you! I think your father would have wanted me to chastise you. at the minimum for this. The rest is between you and God.
