- Wedding: May 2011
So this is going to sound horrible but my Fiance hardly knows anything about his deceased grandparents. He has some issues with dealing with death and either never asked or blocked out what his parents told him. Its actually so bad that he doesn’t even know his deceased grandmothers name on his dad’s side.
Here’s the thing I have always wanted to do a grandparents memorial at the wedding because my grandparents were an important part of my life before they passed. I have all the information about my grandparents and how they died, plus lots of pictures.
As I mentioned my Fiance doesn’t know just about anything about his deceased grandparents and he’s not willing to ask his parents because he’s afraid they will get mad at him for not knowing. He told me to email them myself and ask, using the fact that he has exams and papers due this week as an excuse for why I can’t ask him. I’m just not sure how to broach the subject with his parents. See I was raised in a family that was very open about death and sees it as a normal part of life. He says his family is very closed off and sensitive about the decased. So I don’t want to upset them by asking the wrong way.
Any advice would be appreciated!
