That’s so awful. Internet hugs and I just said a prayer for you and your uncle. I think it is really lousy that you found out that way. I hope that maybe the grief made her react in an odd way. In this situation, I would try not to be too pissed about that. I wish you the best, dear.

@blushpinkbride: that’s an awful way to find out, my thoughts are with you!
I found out my grandfather died last year on Facebook….thanks family…could explain why we haven’t talked to them since the funeral.

Ugh, sorry 🙁
We heard my husband’s grandmother died back in December over Facebook before anyone had a chance to call us (we live in a different country, same timezone). It’s so ridiculous.

TBH, if I found out I was dying, I would tell people in a way I felt comfortable with, since my life is (literally) too short to worry about what everyone else might be comfortable with.

I can’t say if what she did was wrong or right. I’ve made all those phone calls about my terminally ill brother, then when he died same calls. When my mom had a heart attack, I drove like a maniac to the beach so my brother would hear about it from family, not some random calling him. My Dad shut down for the next 5 years from the grief. I just don’t know… making those phone calls are the worst, then the follow up to give updates…. it’s just hard either way. I’ve spent a day in bed after making all those calls.
I’m sorry that you had to find out on FB, i’m sorry about how sick your uncle is, but I think the anger is misplaced.
