You need to be there for your husband if he wants you there. His family can suck it. You're married

You're his wife. If you weren't there people would wonder. I assure you no one is thinking about you.

The best thing you can do is just be there for your MIL and your husband. Death sucks. I have yet to find anything to help make it better besides just being there and being supportive.

Be there. Definitely be there. it is possible that the feeling that you are getting from his family is just that they are wishing that she could have met your babe and it really has nothing with not wanting you there but wishing that the timing was different. They also may just be dealing with their own grief and don't know how to include you in that. Regardless, DH needs you, and I'm certain that your MIL would want you there, even if for no other reason than to know that her son has someone to comfort him. In this situation, they are really the only 2 that matter.
