  • Yes. What he does, cannot erase the fact that he/she was my child. He/she would deserve a proper burial/funeral.

  • Definitely. I would be sorry for the pain my child's acts had caused others, but nothing would stop me from giving her a proper burial and celebrating the beauty of her life as it had touched mine.

  • Nope. He/she would be cremated & that's the end of that.

  • Funerals are for the living to say goodbye one last time. Regardless of what the deceased did in life, I would give family and friends that last opportunity to say goodbye.

    My grandmother died 16 years ago, this month. I was forced to go to school and pretend everything was fine while she was in a hospital bed breathing her last breaths surrounded by the rest of her family. I never got to say goodbye.

  • I believe I would. I think I can understand why another parent would, too.

  • I think I would because no matter what choices my child makes, even horribly ones, doesn't change the fact that they are my child and I love them. The funeral is for the family to have closure, nothing else.
