My Family What Do You M ake Of This

I just found out today my cousin passed away. The cousin was only 25 years old and was the only parent of three babies only a year apart. The problem is this relative died nearly a year ago, and today I find out from another relative who had the wrong family member. I called around till I found out for sure. Isn't it awful how families have lost contact. Is it just my family or has this happened to any of you ? I'm still stunned.

As ironic as it is, in this new world of mass information getting quickly the farthest corners of the globe, families don't communicate. I had an uncle who was dying in the hospital and I didn't know. I called an aunt one day and in the middle of the conversation she was going to the hospital. When I asked why, she told he was dying. I never even knew he was sick.

I'm very sorry to hear stories like this, but a small part of me thinks, Well thank goodness it's not just my family that's screwed up. This has really shock me.
