    • Several months ago when a close relative passed, my daughter and I attended the funeral, but did not want to view the body. It was sad enough that he passed away and viewing him would hurt more.

    • yes it can be painful sometimes I will but most of the time I just want to remeber them the way they were and just greet the family and take a seat.

    • I rarely do.  Don’t want to remember them as a body.

      I did have a friend who drowned at 29 yrs of age.  Sudden, shocking, tragic.... I had to look at the body because my mind could not grasp the fact that such an alive person was suddenly gone.

    • Yes I do because if I go to a funeral, it’s someone I love and I will never get to see them again.

    • You are welcome again if you can take looking at someone who has passed on because it  was there time but when love  ones have die from the hands of others sometimes it can be hard to look upon them because they don’t look the same  I seen this with my only brother  who shot himself in the head and a nephew a baby hit by a car brains were knock out of his head and no one perpare me for it and it hurt me so bad because what I seen was not the body of the person I once knew. ladies I will miss being on here I love the Q&A I hope this is helpful for someone I will be back soon  keep encourageing one another your friend Judah1 someone asked question how do u say goodbye no my friends I will see u later! love u guysheart

    • The funerals that I have attended were family members and dear friends, either from natural causes or a debilitating disease.

      I have viewed them as it was a way for me to say my last goodbye and pray for their soul.  I have never encountered a death that was violent or at the hands of another, and I pray I never have to...it would be heart-wrenching.heartbreak

    • I always view the bodies.  It was hard seeing my mom and dad but the worst was when my 3 month old niece died.  Seeing a little baby in such a tiny casket was terrible.
