Oh my gosh, I am so sorry you had to find out that way.  I agree it was very insensitive of that relative to announce something this major to your family this method…hugs.

Sorry about your loss. That is a harsh way to find out about a loved one’s death. My prayers are with you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Finding out that way definately would make it harder. I think she was wrong to put that up before all the family had been notified. I think you could do one of two things.

1. Comment on her post thanking her for letting you know so soon, since you hadn’t even heard from your parents when she posted.

2. Let it go and spen your time with those who loved your uncle and remember who he was.

I think #2 would be the most meaningful, but I would be REALLY pissed as well and probably do #1.

… yeah, that’s completely not okay. Mr. KM and I had a deal with we would let all applicable parties know we were engaged before we put it on facebook. I feel like someone dying needs to have this rule times 100. I’d be tempted to write something really snarky to her and/or ask her to take it down. Goodness, I’m so, so sorry.

I am very sorry you found out this way and I am very sorry for your loss!

Some people just don’t understand that something that they do on facebook can affect others.

I am very sorry for your loss. That is a terrible way to find out. Like Future Mrs Martin said, some people just don’t get that what they say on facebook affects others.

I’m sorry for your loss, and echo the other posters comments about the inappropriateness of this person’s status update.

Perhaps it would be worth commenting on, so she doesn’t continue to make insensitive updates in the future; or at least make her realize that this in particular was not okay.

I am so sorry for your loss.  May you take comfort in your family and be there to comfort your Aunt.

There is no good way to hear this news, but I imagine reading it on Facebook ranks near the bottom on prefered methods of communication.  I think your desire to rant and rave and tell this woman that Facebook is NOT an appropriate way to communicate that new is completely valid and justified.  That was a bit insensitive on her part.

I’m very sorry about your uncle. I’m very sorry she’s such a nosy busy body! (I can relate with some of my “family” members.)

I really hate when people put private matters on Facebook. If those people need to know, they know phone numbers and someone would call them, not announce it to the world of people who really don’t understand. Someone’s death is private.

I’m so sorry for your loss and yes that was extremely rude to his family to post that on facebook. In the face of tragedy what kind of person goes on facebook the minute after someone passes to post about it. I mean….. really??
