I am sorry for your loss... You need to allow your dd to attend her concert... explain to her why you may not be there.... I am sure that she (in this case) will understand... To me keeping normalcy in the family after a death in the family is very important... children no matter the age are hurt or angered more so than an adult if they must change their plans or do not understand exactly what is going on ... to some (older children) they will consider the parent being unfair to them, maybe even selfish... see if another parent can take her and keep her for you while you attend the funeral, but explain to your dd why you may not be at her concert, make sure she understands your feelings ...
Again I am so sorry for your loss
