  •  Sorry for your loss and experience (6+ / 0-)

    My friend "John" lost his brother  unexpectedly. John's sister in law, a "born again", put on a dog and pony "christian service" and did not allow John's family to share or speak about their brother at the service. (She claimed it was a christian service only..whatever that means!) She even excluded mention of his surviving siblings in the obituary.  They were very hurt and appalled by her intentional omissions and snub. I had my ears open.  It was anything but healing or comforting. John 's family held their own special memorial service.

    Lesson learned: plan your own memorial service, put it in writing and make it legally binding (in a will).
