My niece is dying from a rare blood disorder. She takes comfort in believing she will soon be with her mother in heaven. I know otherwise: My sister isn’t dead. We told my niece that her mom died in a car crash shortly after giving birth to her, to spare her from the truth that her mother abandoned her and her father and ran off with another man. I stayed in touch with my sister (barely) and told her that her daughter is dying. She wants to see her before she does. What should I do?
