My coworker's mom died Tuesday. We don't work extremely closely together, but it's not a big company (about 50 people or so). He's sort of higher up than me and we don't really know each other well, but he's very nice.
My boss just emailed the arrangements to everyone, because apparently people have asked when/where, etc.
My question is, do I need to go? I signed the card and all, but I feel funny going to a funeral for someone I never met. I did that once before at another job when a sales rep's daughter died, but I had met her once while she was living. I just feel funny about it.
Edited to add: I get sort of emotional when people cry, and I dont' want to make a spectacle of myself either.
