Terrible news from my ex-family

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
About three months ago I posted about Debbie, my ex daughter in law ( my ex's son's wife), who had breast cancer that had spread to her brain. Last night, when I came back from a week away, I had a message to say that she died last Monday. She was only 39 and leaves two teenage girls. Her husband, Graham, my ex stepson, also lost his brother to cancer, at the age of 13. As you can imagine, the family are devastated. Please keep them in your thoughts. I have had no direct contact with them for some time, though my daughter remains close to her half brother and his family, and she too is very upset. All I can do is support her.

My thoughts exactly, what an ugly word it is, so devastating and non-biased. I will keep the whole family in my thoughts and send out as many healing vibes as I have!! What a sad situation.

Thank you. My daughter will be attending the funeral tomorrow, and I had a long chat with her tonight. There is so much family history here, it is a difficult situation. But I am glad she is going as she has stayed on good terms with her half brother. She will have to meet up with his mother, which could be hard for her.

Jenny, that's just horrible! What your daughter seems to need is "strength vibes", and she'll definitely be in my thoughts this week, at the very least,

There is no way I could go - my ex's wife has always refused to meet me (I have never understood why as they met long after we had separated) and there was terrible trouble between him and his first wife when he divorced her and she discovered he had met me and that I was already pregnant with Faith (after they had separated). That is why it will be hard for Faith to meet her. Families can be so complicated and difficult. Anyway, I have told Faith to tell Graham quietly how sad I am, that my home is open to him and the girls, and that I am making a donation in lieu of flowers to Cancer research. That is all I can do.

Faith called me last night after she got back from th e funeral. She said her brother and her father were very pleased she had gone, and that there were no problems, beyond the terrible grief at a life cut so short. She extended an invitation to come to France for hte girls, and that was accepted. The girls, 15 and 17, are bearing up as well as can be expected.
