Who should go to a wake?
In my town, we had a terrible tragedy. A woman and her husband tried to canoe down a creek and the canoe overturned. The woman got trapped and drowned.
My husband and I did business once with the husband, and would casually greet him when we saw him around town. We never met his wife. Tonight the funeral home will be open to receive family and friends.
Is it appropriate for me to go briefly and pay my respects, though I am just an acquaintance? I want to do what is right. I feel so bad for the family to lose their wife and mom like that.
