tracing my family rift

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« This vid is a milestone in my relationship with family. My relationships with my siblings did not immediately warm after the vid, but my links are warmer now, and I point to that family reunion event as the beginning of the end of my iced links. I know that people put themselves in my situation and look at my consequences with iced family links and trace the beginning to the period following the end of my first marriage, but I always felt the rift was more traceable to David’s funeral. In a conversation with a friend this week he offered the reason for me being excluded from the family reunion can be traced to the speech I made at the gathering following the gravesite service that laid to rest the body of my late son, David. My speech made nearly 100% of the post-funeral audience uncomfortable, which is why, according to my friend, I was excluded. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

    Okay Tom- don’t leave us hanging. What on earth could you have said in your speech that made everyone so uncomfortable? Funerals are emotional times (particularly when the funeral is for a young person), so it must have really been something unusual to cause your family to shun you for years (assuming, of course, that your friend’s theory is correct). Inquiring minds want to know- please enlighten us!
