    Default Would you attend a funeral...

    Thanks for your replies everyone. I ended up doing the logical thing and rang my father and asked his opinion. He MUCH prefers the idea of me taking the kids to visit my grandmother next week instead. Have decided I'll bring a special plant for his memory and help her plant it in her garden and otherwise just keep it light and spend time with her.

    So I feel better now

    His kids are. It sounds like it will be nicely and respectfully done at least

    I was thinking the same as Cue.. if he was unpleasant due to an illness outside of his control then I would certainly go. If he was just a cruel person then I probably wouldn't, unless I felt I could offer support to other family.

    That sounds lovely In your case I don't think I would be going.

    I went to my (step)grandfather's funeral when I hadn't seen him for years, as he refused to see any of the grandkids once he was in a home. He also used to constantly make comments about my weight or the amount of makeup I wore etc. But my dad, stepmum, brother and sister were all overseas at the time, so I felt someone from our family should be there. It was distressing to see my grandmother so upset, that was what made me cry It was nice to catch up with everyone at the wake though.
