The funeral that I went to on Monday was for the mother of one of my oldest and dearest friends. Her mother got sick unexpectedly and died within a week, and my friend Brenna and her family were just in total shock.
Today Brenna’s sister found their father dead in his bed, apparently from a heart attack. He died of grief and stress at losing his wife. I can’t believe this has happened, I can’t believe my friend is without both of her parents now. She was very close to her family. I can’t stop crying for her. What she’s going through is unimaginable.
Please please please pray for their comfort and peace.
Seeing your friends in pain is the worst thing in the world.
What is appropriate funeral attire? I know dark colors are customary, but do I wear a dress? Heels? Jewelry? Basically, would jeans, a semi-dressy black top, and dressy flats be fine? Or is that too casual?
