In this case we do know the person. We have previously told MIL that we didn't know the person when she's sent an obit of strangers. We've told her to stop sending us obits. She seems to have a compulsion to send them. My last birthday was a classic. I got a card with $20 and an obituary enclosed, I think it was from a cousin of hers that neither of us had ever met. Nothing says happy birthday like the obituary of a stranger!
