You had someone close to you die and no one in your SO’s family bothered to call you or text you to see if you were ok? Mind you, they have your phone number and you live less than 5 minutes from them. Oh, and they live with SO, so they know that the person has died.
By The Way….My FSIL’s husband wrote in Facebook: “We offer our sincere condolences to you and your family. Our prayers are with you.”
I personally dont think its enough…but I want to hear what you ladies think.

No, I know for a fact I was not angry. I was too upset over the death to even give a seconds though to who should or shouldnt be calling me.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Just a thought, how often do you see them? I see my FIL’s a couple of times a week, on average. We don’t really communicate by phone or text or FB, so if they were going to express condolences, they would probably wait to do it in person.

I am really sorry for your loss.
Now to answer your question – I don’t really hold expectations of anyone – if you don’t, no one can disappoint you and everyone seems to pleasently surprise you.
So no I wouldn’t be angry, but obviously you are and you have a right to your opinion and feelings. Just try to remember that a lot of people are uncomfortable with death and don’t know how to act around someone who is greiving. I am sure that they sympathize/empathize with you but don’t know what to say!

I’m sorry for your loss. Perhaps they are trying to jsut give you room to greive and do not want to bother you. If I were not truely close (and IL’s may or may not be, it would depend on the relationship with them), I would send a card or a quick message as to give you or space and time to mourn.

I’m so sorry for your loss:(
That’s a terrible thing for your family to do. My Darling Husband went through a similar thing when his grandma passed away about a month ago. Nobody called him and he found out she died on facebook…then no call for at least 3 weeks from anyone.
