My husband’s aunt passed away. I’ve got a cold or sinus infection – can’t tell at this point. Anyway, I don’t feel like I should travel by air right now, so we’re going to miss the funeral. Within the last year, my husband discovered family through DNA and has been in contact with a few of his new family members. Which is awesome. Anyway, since we can’t travel right now, I’m sending flowers. And what do you put on the card? Deepest sympathy? Sorry I wasn’t able to meet you, but we’ll meet in heaven? And choosing flowers? Well, since I didn’t know Bruce’s aunt, I didn’t know her favorite colors or flowers or if she even liked flowers. So I opted for the safe alternative of white flowers, green leafy stuff. Pretty but safe. My husband wanted colors, so he chose pinks and yellows. Not my choice. He and I have different views on colors. But it’s his aunt. I wish I felt better to travel. We plan on traveling there later in the year, so we’ll visit the grave then I suppose. For some families, the only time they see one another is during a funeral. A funeral is basically a family reunion. I hope the flowers arrive on time.
