If you had nothing to do with it, there’s no reason to apologize!  I’m assuming you already told her you were sorry for her loss, in which case I wouldn’t rehash it.  


Honestly, she might be taking a bit of her grief out on you.  I’m sure she’s very upset at the loss, and for some people anger is easier than grief.  Either way, I wouldn’t worry too much about it.  It’s certainly not your fault, but it seems like venting is definitely in order!  There’s no reason for her to ignore you like that.


I wouldn’t apologize though, especially if it was a few weeks ago.  Her problem, not yours.

@Bee-In-Hiding:  Whaaaaat? This other mother was being ridiculous. Someone’s got to be named first and besides, like you said, you had no say in it. Not only is there is nothing to apologise for, but apologising would be validating her pettiness. In fact, she should apologise to you for being rude to you at the store.

From here, I suggest you just continue to be polite to her. If she wants to continue being petty about it, there’s not much you can do.

Yeah, that’s crazy. 

She probably just has a weird lashing-out-y way of dealing with grief.

That said, really wonderful to hear that this elderly gentleman had so many people who loved and cared about him.
