My biological aunts wake is tonight, my sistrer and I will be missing scrapbooking or go later. I didn't really know her to be honest, met her about 4 times in my life. But I am still going. My younger brother has rude and ignorent as he is, goes I have plans, and invited 10 of his friends over to our house. Karma will bite him noone will go to his funeral, noone in our family knows he is even born (seriously he doesn't go to anything), nor do my parents make him. My aunts own daughter refuses to go because my biological aunt doesn't like her boyfriend so he wont allow her to go. This guy put things in her head, and makes her entire life him. She believes it and ditched her entire fmaily this including her sick mother. She is the same age as my brother, and I think it's just that age frame, but she will regret it, when this amasing boyfriend ditches her, who refuses to let them go see their mother's wake she will have noone. I can see once the great aunts and uncles die off noone in the family who talk. They are holding the family together, as it's so big. I find most of my cousins around my age, have *more important things*. I only talk to about 2 - 4 of my cousins and know they would be the ones that would come to my funeral the rest probably wouldn't even know my name.

Thanks for explaining your use of "biological". I was going to ask, too.

It is an unfortunate, but true fact that families will fall apart after the elders of the family have passed away. This is what has happened with my mother's side of the family. One of her brothers passed away in 1992 and her other brother passed away in 1997, however her mother was still alive so all of the cousins, my mother and my grandmother all got together at least once a year. My grandmother passed away six years ago and though we did all get together that year for Christmas and got together again the following year, it has unfortunately been five years since I've seen several of my cousins. We will still talk of the phone or on facebook from time to time, but we've not been able to get in physical contact with each other for years.
