Q & A

Suppose you have a cousin or other relative who dies that you have not had anything to do with in decades, no hard feelings, just haven’t been in contact.  Would you still go to the funeral?

    • My mom and I are currently having a difference of opinion about this.  One of dad’s cousins died and she’s after him to go to the funeral and he won’t.    I said it’s hypocritical to go to the funeral of someone who you haven’t/wouldn’t bother to have anything to do with while they‘re alive.

    • yes I would go because I would show up for those who have lost there love one to support them in there time of lost if I did not go I would send a card or call the famliy but not get after someone for not going maybe he has his own reason for not going I remember when my mom passed people came from every where that I had not seen in years in my family  I was anger with them asking myself the ??? why are they here but as time has gone by I understand people are people but most of all there was a time that they were there in each others life everyone has there own way of showing love and that gave me alot of peace of mind the time they did spend together even if it was a short period that was there realationship nobody else.

    • It would depend on how I feel about the loved ones he left behind. When I attend a funeral I do so more for them than for the one who has passed.

    • I agree w/ Cynthia-if there were no hard feelings, just grew apart, then I’d be thinking of the family they left behind. would they appreciate the gesture of your being there for them?  Then go.  If not, then don’t.

    • Agree with all the ladies, the family members that are still living are grieving and need support from everyone.

    • I agree with all. However, there are times when a relative has passed and you were not told about it.
