Yes: Well, it depends on the age of the child and whether they were close to the grandparent. If they didn't really know them, or are very young (too young to really understand) then no. However, children are oddly very accepting of life rituals, and they help the child come to grips with major life changes and move on. Be ready for a lot of questions though, and be honest. ...Read more
It depends: This can be difficult for many. Funerals are a time to come together, and remember the person who has died.

My friend and I were wondering if you think it is ok for children to go to funerals. If so, what age?
Yes: I see no problem with children attending funerals. If they are "too" small (2-4), they may just end up having "good" time at the funeral. If they are older, they may not necessarily understand what's going on, but, at least, might just stand silently. I actually believe that children must see both sides of life, not just the bright one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My friend sadly took her life after writing a will, leaving a funeral plan and driving 1000kms to a isolated forest, could she have been really ill ?
Yes of course: How very sad and the loss of a valuable and precious life. It seems she had everything planned out. So may have been hard to stop her from acting out. The mind is a very fragile and yet powerful organ. It controls all. It is to bad she did not seek help to work with her and also to rule out any medical problems I am sorry for your loss. No good ever comes from such an act ...Read more
