Why do funerals seem like family reunions? Does that mean my extended family is doing it wrong? Don’t get me wrong, I see my siblings, Mom & grandma regularly. But cousins & 2nd cousins are another story. My cousins have married, divorced & remarried. I have gone decades without seeing distant relatives who in the same city..
Every funeral we say the same thing : “It’s great to see you! We have to meet on happier occasions.”
I won’t see them until the next family reunion… If I’m fortunate.
