My daughter (who is age 15) informed me that a girlfriend of hers passed away a few days ago at the age of 18 and she asked me to drive her to the funeral home for the visitation/viewing. This will be the first time my daughter has ever attended such a service. She asked me to stay with her for support. The problem is that I did not know the young girl who passed away or her family so I feel strange attending a visitation for someone I did not know, but I want to be there for support for my daughter. If the casket is open I do not know how my daughter will react when she sees her friend laid out in repose. I wish I could find out ahead of time in order to prepare my daughter if it will be open, but I would feel very strange calling the funeral home and asking if it will be an open or closed casket viewing. I am not even sure if it is proper if I go into the funeral home since I did not know the person who died or her family. Any ideas, adivice or suggesitons will be helpful.
