Funeral Etiquette

"Etiquette is all about making people feel comfortable
and being respectful."

There is no rulebook on what to do, say, or how to behave when someone we know is grieving. Because there is no one specific way to grieve, there is no one way to react. Be there, listen and let them talk. When it's appropriate, try to share a story about the person who has died. Most of all keep in mind they need your comfort and support. Simply be there and listen.
