My brother called me at 7:30 this morning, asking if I had heard from our parents yet. Our Dad’s mom passed away at just about 3:00 this morning. Neither of us had spoken to our parents yet- he had found out through Facebook because our uncle’s girlfriend had posted it at like 4:30 am. Nice way to find out, huh? Turns out my parents were up until about 5 am and were planning on calling each of us about the time my brother called them (after hanging up with me). Obviously there was nothing that could be done at 3am so letting us know at a reasonable hour is totally normal. Posting on Facebook before family knows? So shitty. I feel awful for my little brother reading that before talking to anyone. Ugh, people.
