Ciosed-Casket Funeral Gives No Comfort to Mourning Friend
DEAK ABBY: Today I attended the funeral of a friend who had been killed in an auto accident. I had not seen him in several years, and was dismayed to learn that the family had decided to have a closed casket. At first. I assumed that the body was not in condition for viewing, but then I learned that this was not the case: nor was his family carrying out his wish — they simply decided it would be easier this way.
Abby, my heart goes out to those people, but I feel that they made two mistakes (easy enough to do in their grief. I realize):
1. They presumed that no one besides them needed to see the loved one for a visual farewell, denying others the opportunity to cope better with reality. (To make matters worse, this man was an educator w ho had influenced the lives of many young people. The young people had no focus for their grief. If I can think. “Maybe it's all a mistake: I never saw him." what about kids?)
2. The family showed a lack of
acknow lodgment for the needs of dear friends, some of whom were far closer to the deceased than his kin.
I know that nothing can change this experience for me since I was denied my farewell, but I hope my writing can make a difference to another decision and others’ grief.
DEAR UNFINISHED BUSI-NESS: The kin (regardless of how “close" or distant they were to the deceased) always have the final say in such matters, which I believe is appropriate. Everyone does not need to view the lifeless body to “focus on their grief” or accept the fact that a loved one is dead. Some prefer to remember that person as he or she was in life.
His family, for reasons of their own, chose a closed-casket funeral. Please do not fault them.
