my dad passed away last month. my mom will be holding a memorial for him in june. i really want to attend since its my dad. i admired him so much. the thing is that i really dont want to be around my mother. i wish it were her who had died. i just dont know what to do. the other reason i want to in is because i feel my 6 year old deserves to go. he said goodbye at the hospital but hes still grieving and i feel it would be good for him in the long run. what do you ladies think i should do?

I would go. Even if you just go to say goodbye than leave. You don't have to hang out with your mom. Just be civil.

I would go & bring your child. Sorry it required seeing your mom. But closure is important.

I would go, its one day with your mom, but it might bring some closure to you and your child. Plus there will be more people there, maybe u will be able to avoid your mom all day.

I agree with this.

Go. There will be people there who want to express condolences to hou and your son. Generally funerals are big enough that you can avoid one person.

It sounds like some closure would be beneficial - is there someone who can attend with you for support and to help you stay clear of your mother?

Go, I can almost guarantee you will regret it if you don't attend. 

Ignore your mom as much as possible, but do your best to stay civil at the same time.
