  1. I am sorry for your loss. It won't be easy to process that relationship. Hugs to you.
  2. Imagine the hubris of these people.
  3. If the wedding is still many months out, emotions may cool enough that even if parents are not invited, they are less likely to crash it. If you really think they may crash the wedding, hire a security guard. For family photos I would encourage the groom to have photos with people who have been important to him - his chosen family. Have people seated across both sides of the aisle no matter whose "side" they represent. I think you should talk a lot about how happy you are to have him be part of your family when you speak at the reception. I know that would mean a lot. You can just drop
  4. I am so sorry to read this. We had a similar disaster pre-covid and I am still traumatized when I hear water running unexpectedly. The workers were basically in our house one day for about 6 hours, setting up massive fans and removing drywall and ruined items.

  7. Thinking of you and hope the move went smoothly.
  8. I want to add my story, which heavily influences my own thinking: My dad died of cancer when I was 8 years old, more than 40 years ago. I don't remember the last Thanksgiving or the last Christmas Eve or Christmas Day we spent together. I *DO* remember the exact day after Christmas when he and my mom left for the hospital so he could have the exploratory surgery that led to his diagnosis. I remember standing in the living room with the light blue carpet as they walked out the door. He never came home.
