With death what worries me is emotions. If I had to break bad news, how would they respond and how would I respond to that? I have a few experiences with death of family members and for me and my family, we use the wake as a celebration of life. Recently a close find of my family’s dad died suddenly in an explosion leaving behind six children and his wife. The funeral had over four hundred people attended and the wake was a happy and loud place full of stories being told about his life. My parents struggled with the loss but have just started opening up about it.
