A friend of mine passed away the day after Christmas last year. She lived in Florida and I went down there for the service. Now, her parents are doing a memorial dinner and fundraiser in her name. Her uncle has a lot of frequent flyer miles built up and is paying for a few of us (her friends) to fly down to Florida for the weekend. Her parents are also putting us up in a hotel.

We want to get her parents and her uncle a gift. There are five of us going and we were all talking about chipping in $20 - $25. That's all some of us can afford. I got the following message from one guy who's kind of leading the gift-buying idea:

"Let’s not be concerned on how much a little gift costs when trying to show our gratitude for all they have done for us. If you don't want to give them a gift then just say so now and I won't put your name on whatever it is the rest of us are gifting."

Is that a really low blow or am I reading too much into it?
