Hi to all, I had a conversation with my Dad a few days ago, during which he said that he didn't know that a family member had passed away because nobody told him. I had actually told him about her illness, and phoned to let him know that she had passed away, and even told him about her funeral. I know that my brother has also spoken to him about it. I didn't know whether or not to correct him; if I had I think he would have been upset at having forgotten, and if I didn't it made him upset because he thinks no-one told him. In the end I took the cowards way out and changed the subject. As this is the first major thing that he's forgotten (children's names have gone but he still knows who we all are) I admit to feeling a bit of a failure. My husband says that I should have corrected him, I would appreciate other people's opinions on how they have dealt with situations like this. Many thanks, Kate x.
