This chapter discusses the issue concerning who should be part of the mourning rituals. It describes the case of Edna, a woman in her seventies, who was having second thoughts about letting her children attend the funeral of her husband or their father because of some conflict. The chapter suggests including as many people as possible in the support network in order to lessen the load on each grieving individual, and also to lesson the possibility of resentment between family members. All family members should attend the formal mourning rituals.

Keywords:   mourning rituals, funeral, family members, grieving individual, support network
