in-laws of deceased husband

My husband passed in November 2016...7 longs months ago.  We lived 2000 miles away from family and always kept in touch via snail mail, fb, and phone calls.  Now with John gone, I have tried to keep the contact with his family but it is only one sided.  After all the "sorry for your loss" was said they all seem to have disappeared.  It makes me sad but I will not continue to force relationships where the obviously do not exist.  Has anyone else experienced this?  He has a sister and…See More

Good Morning Prissy!

   It looks like the sun finally came out. It has been so rainy and windy lately.

    I go by Sissy on this site. Please call me Susan.  I hope the site helps you along. I'm often surprised that others are going through the same ting I am.
