    Yo b, they related to u. Do we really need to convince u?

    If a relative of a friend past away I wud still go. Its not so much the dead person u doin it for, its just showing love and condolences for 4 the bereaved family.

    You didn't know her like that so I understand why you feel like you don't want to go.

    Its more about showing support and he wants you to go. Its not like you going there just to be seen and act out like a lot of these 🤬 actin out at funerals.

    @unspoken respect .. y would u assume that if obviously I don't wanna go?? Act out? For what? I don't have any emotions tied to the person nor situation.. plus I've only got emotional @ 2 funerals, when my grandma died and when my 3 year old niece died last year .. I honestly hate funerals cuz Alot of cats go overboard with 🤬 .. wayyyyy overboard.. and I hate the 🤬 preachers say.. like when my cuzzin died 2 years ago and the 🤬 on stage talking bout hell and some 🤬 about 12 foot worms and big ass turtles..

    I've been to funerals of ppl I wasn't particularly close to b/c I was very close to a family member of theirs. 1 of my best friends from HS had her closest cousin die. I knew him b/c we all went to HS together but we weren't cool like that. I went b/c she begged me to come.

    If its fam I usually go regardless. Even if u don't 🤬 w/ that side or part of ur fam it's a good time to meet & get to know ppl or see the ones ur cool who u don't get to see often.

    Hate funerals. Never went to my homeboys mama funeral. Never went to my ex's father's funeral. Never went to my other ex mama's funeral (that was out of town tho). Smh. I should've gone tho. Kinda regret it.

    My bad homie. Read what I said again. I left out the word "not". No disrespect. Just saying you're going on invitation and don't have an agenda. He wants you to go so why not show support?
