He had been sick for a very long time but in the past six months had really gone downhill. He was at the cross cancer in Edmonton,Alberta,Canada,waiting to be brought home when he passed.
His wife Mary is a wonderful woman. They are actually my sister-in-laws parents,but when my mom passed away in 03 we sked Mark and mary to be the kids adopted grandparents. My dad was killed in a logging related accident in 1987.
They for the most part understand about dying.
I am torn as to wether or not to take them to the funeral tomorrow
What would any of you do. Any advice is very welcome

I would take them if they understand what's going on. When I was 6, my best friend was hit by a car and killed, my mom wouldn't let me go to the funeral. It crushed me. She thought she was protecting me, but it really hurt (especially cause I knew the rest of my family was getting to go, and i was not)...I knew what a funeral was...and I wanted to feel part of it. I realize now that it wasn't all about me, but she was my best friend in the whole world...and I think saying goodbye would have helped me deal with it better than I did.
