Has your tween been to a funeral?

I have a second job at a gym. My coworker passed away suddenly last week. Her funeral is tomorrow.

My middle boys (13 and 9) have known her for the three years that she worked there and my one year old has known her all of his life.
My boys still haven’t decided yet if they are coming with me tomorrow.

Hi. Unfortunately my tween DD lost 3 of her 4 remaining grandparents in less than 10 months. My mom died 11 months before she was born. She did well and actually became re-aquainted with a second cousin who are good friends now.

My 12 year old went to my grandpas funeral, when she was 4. It was out of state, and we flew in. I really had no choice once we were there, but to take her along.
She did very well with it.
Both my children attended my adopted mom’s memorial. But, it was on the beach and very light , and a month after her passing.

the only funeral my boys have been to was for their grandfather but it was over 6 years ago and my youngest doesn't remember (he was a toddler) and my oldest was 6 so he barely remembers.
