My really nice MIL passed away in December, and it's been really strange. We haven't told that many people, but we're often getting no response from people. Is it bad manners that I'm telling some of my friends my MIL has passed away? Or is it just awkward, and they don't know what to say? I'm not looking for sympathy, but when someone asks what's new, it seems strange to leave out that a major part of our lives is gone. But maybe I shouldn't mention it?
What do you think?
