The thing that I feared happened. Everyone has been praying and hoping that my uncle would at least tide through till after my cousin's wedding next week but he left us today. After struggling for half a year, he's off to a better place now. Not only have we to deal with the grief, the family has to be splitted, 1 group will be helping out with the funeral and the other to attend the wedding. Dowager's instruction is that all should attend the wedding except 1 family. My parents stepped up but since I'm supposed to help out in the wedding, only my parents won't be attending the wedding. How untimely of things but guess that's why life's a bitch... This is gonna be tough.
