  • I'm sorry for your uncle's death. I wouldn't go simply because of what they're saying not at all that its' true. They'll stress you out and you don't need that. Assuming your uncle was a kind hearted man there's nothing to be spooked about at all. Do what gives you the least amount of stress, your uncle would want that too I bet. Take care.

  • I think thats a bunch of hokey pokey. You will be just fine, you will regret not going and paying your respects.

  • my sister went to our mother's funeral when she was pregnant and my nephew is fine, so i would say it's probably superstition. if you wanted to be super safe i guess you could go for a blessing before and after the funeral

  • I don't believe that will happen. I woouldn't go b/c of the stress it will cause. You shouldn't put yourself in an upsetting situation. I'm sorry for your loss.
