Funeral Standards: Did the rules change and I missed the memo?

<< < (2/2)

I know a viewing isn't quite the same as the funeral, but most viewings I've been too have been just as quiet and solemn as the funeral.  Except my father's viewing.  That was a huge, loud, boisterous party, right there in the funeral home.  It was difficult to hear people over everybody talking.  It was absolutely great, and it was just what my father would have wanted.  His funeral the next day was also nowhere near as solemn or quiet as most funerals.  It wasn't as party-like as the viewing had been, but still different than most I've been to.  I think it all depends on the person and the actual event, whether it's a funeral or memorial service. 

Locked. For those of you who might be perplexed as to why, read the rules.
