Should You Attend A Funeral Reception
Following a funeral or memorial service, it's common for there
to be a luncheon or reception. It may be held in a reception room
at a church or temple, at the home of the honoree or relative, or
even at a restaurant. If it's at the home of an immediate family
member, friends and relatives provide the food.
These gatherings can be solemn occasions or celebratory in
nature. It is up to the family to decide the tone of the event.
If you're invited to this gathering, it's important to attend.
It's a simple way to show your support and sympathy.
