Sad to say, a neighbour has died. We were on good terms but not best friends. We are prob slightly friendlier with her son who also lives nearby. Anyway. I was planning to take DH away next w/e, just the 2 of us. Booked tickets and everything, won't get the money back. About £200. Should I cancel my plans?
No, I don't think you should cancel. FIL died last year and MIL's best friend couldn't come to the funeral as she was on a holiday that had been booked months before. It was sad for MIL that she couldn't come to the funeral but no noses were put out of joint because of it - you can't time these things can you? (funerals I mean obviously not holidays )
My Grandad died a week before we went to Salou. We didnt cancel. He wouldn't of wanted us to do that. We had a drink in his name on the day of the funeral and then went to his grave the day we got back.
