When a cousin of mine passed away, the visitation was a rather large one-he had several friends and family members show up. His death was a shock, especially since he was 35 at the time. When one walks into the funeral home, there is a large foyer with double doors leading to the main area. At my cousin's visitation, his three sisters (all in their early 20's) were positioned in the foyer-in order to walk into the main area, one had to pass directly by them. I assume their mother had strategically placed them there in order to speak to people. However, there was one problem: they were completely and utterly inconsolable. They were wailing, blowing their noses, and crying so loudly and so hard that none of them could even speak and were pretty much inconsolable the entire time. I don't begrudge them their grief at all, but only bring this up because I would like to know what to do when I am in that situation. Is it better to leave or to stay if you can't control your grief at the funeral or visitation of someone very close to you?
