This is one of those situations that I read about all the time on WB, and wonder if technology has gone too far.

You need to PICK UP THE PHONE! Don’t wait for an answer in writing or via email, or Facebook, or whatever else that isn’t direct contact. You need to call and hear a voice, and be able to ask/answer questions.

I’d call the extended family to make sure who of that group can come.  Then I’d plan on your dad, his wife and their daughter just in case.  To pay for those three is worth the grief you may get if you called.  You shouldn’t be put through grief to get an answer.  Best wishes.

Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize that was the situation. I guess if he did that to you, and you’ve been estranged all this time, I would probably take this as another sign that he is messed up. I’d personally try reaching out to the extended family and if that doesn’t work, i think you need to write them off. I’m sorry, that totally stinks, but honestly this man and the others associated with him don’t seem much like family. If they can’t even respond, they aren’t worth losing any sleep over, and I definitely would not worry about a contingency plan for people that can’t even be polite enough to contact you or respond.
