Let them know that you may or may not attend the funeral itself but that you'll be there with them in spirit if you stay away. Follow up a visit with his wife later on just to let her know you still care.
As you know we're here for you whenever/ whatever.
I second this.... I really don't like funerals, but I also know that closure is tooo darned important.. you need it.. you might not realize it, but you do..
we are all here for you....
My best friend past away October 18, 1984 (I named my daughter after her) twice a year I go to the cemetary, on her birthday and the day she passed, I bring her something and Joyce my daughter brings her something... it is my way to see her I always talk to her and it is my way to teach my child that going to the cemetary is a respectful thing to do. I almost always kneel and almost always cry, but as longs as I have lived here I always go...
now at the same cemetary is my nephew Keith, Danny-a boy I used to babysit, Nikki and Dana Friends from high school, Sherry-a Friend from out bowling team, ****-a friends dad WE go only on Joyce's dayd, but we visit all of them, bringing a small Happy Meal toy to my nephew .. We stop and talk to all of them... I understand they are NOT there... but its good for me, to know where they are...
