I go to funerals but I do not go to viewings anymore. (So I only go if the casket is closed or already interred.) Corpses creep me the hell out, for a number of reasons. Mostly because they always look radically different (in my eyes) than the living person did.

On the other hand, I agree with you that closure must come, but I figure a funeral can help it come a little bit sooner. Although for me, reading the obituary in the paper and then going to the gravesite a week later does about as well, so ...

yeah, don't get me wrong... I'm not saying that people shouldn't have funerals if they need them. It just annoyed me that people try to pressure me into going (no matter how good their intentions are).
