    I am a widow who lives near my deceased husbands mother. Is she still my mother-in,law? Can she simply drop me from family gatherings. She says I am still family but leavi.g me out makes me feel otherwise. Just wondering if there is any guidance on this.

    Have you asked her to invite you to family gatherings? I guess it is up to her but it is pretty cold for her not to.

    On the other hand, I would have missed my father in laws funeral if an aquaintance had not told me he died.
