    I had a similar experience with my grandfather's funeral. He passed very suddenly and the funeral coordinator blatantly ignored our instructions to not refer to any form of an afterlife (staunch atheist). It felt wrong.

    It's been 8 years and I still feel we never farewelled him properly.

    The only thing that was 'right' was how many people came to honour his life.
