You know E's friends mam died on Sunday, well A went back to school yesterday, my mam has been taking her/picking her up. This morning a few of the mams pulled my mam and said they all wanted to get together and buy A something or do something for her. My mam said that was a lovely idea and she would ask A's aunty for any ideas.
My mam spoke to the Aunty who said "tell them no thanks, she shouldn't be shrouded in sympathy" WTF, she's 9yrs old and has just lost her mam, why shouldn't she have sympathy.

WTF? I'd do the collection and get her something anyway. Poor little mite. x

Poor A, of course she's allowed some sympathy, and doing the collection is a lovely idea x

WTF indeed? Do it anyway. Poor thing x

WTAF. I agree with the others, do it anyway. Nine years old! And even if she was 29, she's lost her mam, she's entitled to some sympathy in my eyes!!

Good god. Is this the same aunty that insisted she be woken up and taken to see her mum's body? A is lucky she has your mum and you around for support. Maybe instead of a collection people could take turns inviting her round for tea or to the park or something, would the aunty see that as interfering or helpful? Sounds like A could do with as much outside support as possible rather than something tangible
pressed send too soon. I do think a collection is a lovely idea though, if people want to do that then stuff the aunty x

WTF indeed. My mam is going to tell them to do it anyway when she see's them tonight. I don't see the problem with it at all. They are a strange and selfish bunch.
weekender yes its the same Aunty. I think the Aunty would see it as interfering if people offered to take her for tea etc.

she sounds delightful. Is she going to be A's guardian?

Poor girl with family like that. At least your mum and others are there for her.

weekender she is a horrible woman and has a horrible daughter as well. Atm no one knows what is going to happen to her. At one point when D was still alive she said that A was going to live with her dad for 4 days and her aunty for 3 days but the dad told my mam that he would be taking her full time but atm its all up in the air. I think we'll know more once the funeral is over.

At 9 years old and less than a week after her mum died I would hope she is surrounded/shrouded by sympathy. Maybe auntie has a misguided way of dealing with grife. I would say do it anyway if people are happy to.
