Aw Caz. What a sad story this is.

Just remind your mum that she is not responsible for your auntie, and she did not invite her over.

But I do feel sorry for the old dearie, coming all this way, and having a nasty accident like that.

Take Care Caz.

A few of my rellies went to America in the 70s. I visited them when i was younger. On Monday my mum got a call from her 86 year old sister, thinking she was in the US. No she was in my town, at her brothers.

The brother is, shall i say, a little simple, he asked her over. Then he began to be nasty to her and she asked to go to my parents. They tookher out and when she came to their house, she fell and broke her elbow, was in surgery today.

My Mum is not well and cant take the strain, my auntie is quite domineering! My Mum has two sisters still in the area, neither want to know.

When you trace your family history and see such rejection, it is so sad,

Caz xx
