You are like my daughter, she will go to the visitation but will not go look at the body as she becomes very anxious and turns cold and clammy. So I support anyone who cannot actually look at the body but has been to the visitation to show their respect.
I have been to way to many, like Lyn I lost my son when he was 21 and my daughter held up. We were unable to show Todd and I was not going to anyhow but God took that out of my decision making.
Bless you and I am praying for all of you.

Machelle, my heart goes out to you at this time. i pray you get by, and have the strength to make it thru the day. i have also buried several family members in the not too distant past- in australia we have a culture that tends to have the casket closed at the funeral, which can make it less confronting. open casket funerals are in the minority here..
you will get thru this day, praying for you, sending healing peace your way- remember him fondly, the way he was. no one can rob you of your positive memories.
