Unhappy Last chance to make amends - October 25th 2010, 11:55 PM

Hey,

Today I learned something that depressed me. Let me fill you in, my grandmother died when I was a young child I wasn't effected that much as I didn't see that severity of it. My grandmother had a brother, I've never spoken to him, seen him, and I doubt he knows of my existence. He had an argument and exiled himself from our family, becoming a black sheep. Today I overheard my mom and my aunt talking, his lawyer called to tell that a donation to find a cure for cancer was to be made of his life funds, also his lawyer wanted to tell us that he wanted to be buried in our family graveyard next to his sister my grandmother. I think this is attempt to make amends with our living family to say sorry. My grandmother died of cancer, and I think he's dying too. I might never see him in my life, but what I've heard from stories he is a good man. Should I try to contact him, leaving out I'm his grandnephew just to talk to him before he dies?

Telling from your age, I think you should consult your parents about this first. You don't know him, so until you do don't make any assumptions. I suggest talking to your parents about this in a serious/emotional manner when you all have the time to do so.


I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.
