and upon news of your family member’s death - would you give similar answers?
I've known people who have. My brother-in-law's son and daughter just to name two. We found out that he had molested them when they were children, that is why they hated him and didn't even bother to come to his funeral after he killed himself. There are many reasons a person would disown another family member, it would just depend on the severity of the charges. Considering the molestation, I found their feelings completely understandable.
As for me, the closest thing to a relative I could say that about is my ex-husband, who is danged lucky I didn't kill him myself ; )
