Surprise Party?

by Brian
(Texas )

Good morning, we have a question about a surprise party. We have been planning a surprise birthday party for my mom, with the help of my aunt (her sister). The party is scheduled for Sept. 15th. Sadly, my aunt’s husband passed away suddenly. Our question is should we continue with the plans for the surprise party or do we cancel?

Surprise Party

This certainly is an unfortunate situation. My condolences to your aunt, her family, your mother, you and your wife and family.

Obviously, your uncle's funeral preparation will take priority. Can the date of the surprise party be shifted? What is your aunt comfortable with? What would your mom be comfortable with? If you can sort through those questions, you will have your answer.
