My uncle just lost his short battle with cancer. His funeral is Friday with visitation Thursday evening. I still don’t feel comfortable in big gatherings. Not to mention several family members are anti-maskers. So, I’m not taking the risk and watching the live streamed funeral. A first for me. I’m grateful it’s an option. Despite my objections, Mom has decided to briefly go to the visitation. I’m sure it’ll be fine, but it still makes me nervous. I think the family should understand our reservations and at least wear masks. Better yet, give her reassurance they won’t think less of us for not attending. It’s so hard, we want to be supportive, but at the same time we don’t want to jeopardize our own health. Have you had to make difficult decisions like this?
