On January 1 (my wife's birthday) my mother-in-law passed away. Since I will be making a special dinner for my wife and daughter on Valentines ( rasberry-white wine glazed cornish game hens, spatzle) The dillema is whether to invite my father-in-law. I figured he would be lonely that night. Its OK with me; I don't need to be alone with my family on valentines. Karen is close to her father also but I thought asking him over may be overdoing it. Any opinions welcome.
Thanks,
Dave

No, Dave. Sounds like a very good idea. I'm sure he could use the diversion and the companionship! Make it a fun night, pull out some board games, make some special fancy blender drinks (n/a for the little one), and enjoy the time together.

I think its a great idea too, but make sure your wife is ok with it. Ask her what her opinion is, as she will know a little more about how her father will feel. He might turn down your offer because he doesn't want to intrude, or would rather spend the night by himself. But the thought is what matters the most. Good Luck I think it was a very sweet idea.

thats a great idea! being alone is always tough, and being alone after such a loss is surely the worst.

definately have him come over. if he is comfortable sharing his feelings, make a point to dot the evenings conversation with wonderful memories about your mother-in-law. i am sure he would genuinely appreciate her memory being kept alive and talked about.

and like angela said, it is a very sweet idea.

If I were him, I doubt I'd feel like doing any 'couples' type activity so soon after the loss. But that's just me.
