  • If you want to show respect to your former friend, attend the service, call the family, if you pray, say a prayer or send a card.

  • If your presence will cause others to be uncomfortable or take away from the person's funeral, then no.

  • We go to funerals to console the living and to put closure on our own loss. You may have some need for closure if you are considering going. Be sure though that you can refrain from saying anything negative about the deceased, or do not go.

  • If your presence will support the grieving ex-coworkers, then go. If your being there will cause strain rather than healing, then don't go.
