Maybe there's a reason why so many fairy-tales feaures a wicked stepmother ? Yet I've come acros so many really excellent stepmothers who try so hard to handle the situation as well as possible.
But I remember your previous messages, she this one sounds a really horrible person.
It's such fake "Christianity" to parade a church-full of strangers past a dying man's bedside in a way thatg embarrasses him and provides him with no benefits. Obviously busy trying to look marvellous in front of her fellow-hypocrites.
At least it is a blessing that the poor man is now beyond two sources of misery - the cancer and the wife.
I don't understand the late decision to take him to the Hospice, when their workers could have come to the home and cared for him there.
Check with the hospice and get yourself a grief counsellor ( they will know people well experienced at this ) to help you deal with this complex grief and your many justifiable reasons for anger. But you all, your brother and sister included, nead to find peace and freedom from the insufferable cruelty of that witch. Don' allow her to create any more hurt for any of you ; and find closure yourselves, and ways to express your feelings for your dad, now at least quite separate from her.
