I get that she's upset and all, but what a bitchy thing to say! There's more to being a dad than being a sperm donor. So probably a real dad in any sense of it. Sorry for your loss as OP.

I mean, I feel bad for the OP, but we don't know the situation here. Personally, my dad left my family in the dust and married a new woman and is raising my step-siblings as if they're his own. So I get if the step-sister feels bitter if they have a similar circumstance, but the both of them have my condolences.
Things like this can bring out the worst in people because they are upset. At my uncle's funeral my cousin got mad at me for crying and said "Its not like YOUR dad died!" and I wasn't upset about it because I understood that she was just upset and stuff like that spills out. All you can do is support her in a time like this while also having people who support you, since it was a major loss for you as well. I'm very sorry OP.
My stepdad raised my sister and me, so I completely understand. Our biological father has such a minor role in our lives that he's obsolete. My stepdad is my Dad. I'm sorry for your loss.
Damn, that sucks. But your stepsister is kinda right. It is HER dad and she should be the most devastated.
