Can you grieve for someone you never really knew?
The reason I ask is because a friend of mine, along with myself, have fathers who aren’t in our lives at all. Her father died today and she decided to attend the funeral.
If and when my father passes, I don’t think I can because of my half-siblings, I think it would be intrusive to them, nor do I think I’ll grieve over someone who never wanted to be in my life.
Just curious what you thought, or how you would handle it?
