💥 Uninvited MIL: Right or Wrong?

Our heartbroken protagonist recently lost her husband unexpectedly, leaving her and their two young children devastated. 😢 As she's arranging her husband's funeral, her MIL demands to see the grandkids, despite not helping with any funeral arrangements.

As she processes her grief and uncovers hurtful messages between her MIL and husband, she wonders if her decision was justified or if it's just her grief talking. 🤔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this emotionally charged situation...
