I am still outraged at the treatment of the daughters of the guy whose funeral I went to. I am not making this up: it was a small chapel at the funeral home. There were 4 rows reserved for family. When the family came in, it was the wife, her extended family (brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, her sons, etc) They took up the first 3 rows. Then, the daughters, his mother, and sister. They were not counted as "family". I guess it all depends on who writes the checks. My BFF's daughters spoke at it. The younger one is 18 and is my God daughter, at her request a couple years back. She was absolutely great. She spoke of her memories of her father, but they were all before he married this woman. She even said "when my dad was married to his second wife, I remember...." No mention of his marriage to this wife. I was impressed at her wit.
