Unexpected death of family member within days of a party
by E M
My siblings and I have planned a rather large 75-100) surprise party for my mother's 80th birthday at an elegant venue with dinner, music, flowers, etc. for her family and friends.
This is currently happening:
My mom's sister-in-law (who was invited to the party), my aunt, has become unexpectly ill and will very likely pass days before the party, could even be the day of the party.
What do we do? Do we move forward with this party that has been in the planning for months, call everyone and postpone it or what?
We are lost at what to do as we are all close to this aunt and don't want to show any disrespect.
