To tell or not to tell
I am a grandparent but my question really involves my brother`s son. My brother is now dead. He was not my father`s son. This seems to have been tacitly acknowledged by everyone except my father and my brother`s son, who is now a mature man with kids of his own. He is carrying the wrong name. His father, my uncle, who had no children of his marriage to my mother`s sister, left all the family heirlooms to my brother in his will. Something which caused smiles and winks all around. Once long ago when my brother met me at the airport I told my aunt I thought it was my uncle standing there, they looked so much alike. She smiled and said "I wouldn`t mind" All these people are gone now. The question is should I tell my nephew about this? I think he has a right to know but then I could be wrong. Incidentally, we all adored my uncle, he was a wonderful man.
