The current dress fad or fashion, as long as it’s neat and clean, may raise the confidence level of children and make it possible for them to attend the funeral rites. Be proud of them for their willingness to go and pay their respects. Someone inappropriately dressed diverts attention away from the bereaved. Remember, you’re attending to help the loved ones left behind, not to make a fashion statement for yourself. 8. Go to the funeral Yes, I said go to the funeral.

We know that truth so well that we’ll pretend we’re not on the verge of tears just to make you feel 10 101 W AY S Y O U C A N H E L P comfortable! But if I, as the bereaved, can’t cry at the wake, when there are people who care about me around to rub my back, hold my hand, and give me a hug, when can I cry?
