Q: We chose not to bring my five-year
old son to my father's funeral. He misses
his grandfather and constantly asks about
him. Should we take him to the unveiling
A: Before bringing him to the unveiling,
take him to the chapel and I can walk
him through it, explaining what happens
from the time of death to the funeral.
The unveiling itself will have little meaning.
A beter understanding of the process is far
more important than attending an event he
can't possibly comprehend.
