Losing a child is one of the most devastating experiences a parent can go through. For one couple, the pain of losing their 11-year-old son Ryan three years ago has been a difficult journey. They've managed to find some peace through therapy and are even considering having another baby. But when their sister brings up the untouched college fund left behind for their late son, the couple faces a heart-wrenching decision. Should they give the money to their nephew, or save it for a future child? 😔💸

NTA. The entitlement and insensitivity of OP's sister is outrageous 😡. The college fund is for OP's planned child and his wife's parents contributed to it specifically for their grandchild's education. Many scholarships are available for nephew. 👏
