My daughter is getting married. Our family is small and getting smaller. Invitations were sent to my mother's two surviving brothers and their wives, not in the hope that gifts would be forthcoming, but rather as an announcement of a memorable occasion. We live quite some distance apart, and holiday cards and wedding announcements have become our main forms of communication.
One uncle & aunt's invitation was returned as undeliverable/addressee unknown.
Yesterday's mail included a lovely card and monetary gift from my aunt, the widow of my uncle. Until searching for a possible obituary online, I was unaware that he had passed away last year! And here is what is more curious -- the bridal greeting card included the response card from the invitation that my aunt never received.
Help me out eHellions. 1. Is it too late to send a letter and condolences to my aunt upon the death of her husband. 2. What the heck do I say ? ? ? ? ?
