There will be 100's of people attending this...her entire congregation, of which is very restrictive (no music, dancing, drinking, no makeup or haircut/color or pants for women...you get it), so this will take hours. There are 5 kids, plus the spouses (I don't know if children stand in the receiving line...?) and at least 2 of them (my husband's sisters) will yakkkety yak without regard to how they are holding up the line. That's is what happened at my father in law's funeral anyway...most distressing, since I had people literally stuck standing in front of me who I didn't even know.
Just go with the flow & it will all be over soon. I know of no religion (except perhaps Orthodox Jewish) that doesn't allow makeup, just curious? I am no expert though.

Phew... Hope it went well. I saw all the restrictions and it immediately brought to mind my old church group. Ugh. I hate having to show up for those things. We actually could wear make-up and cut our hair, but not rock music, dancing, drinking, and we HAD to wear a skirt or dress. Pants were a HUGE no..no. Always kinda confusing to me...
