How to Behave at a Funeral

When paying your respects at a loved one’s funeral, it is important to carry yourself respectfully. This is a ceremonious time during which you can honor the life of the deceased and offer support to the family. If another person is telling a story or recalling memories about the deceased, be respectful by listening carefully. In some funerals, it is appropriate to listen quietly. In others, it is normal to recall funny memories and share a good laugh. Follow the dress code mentioned on the funeral invitation. If there is no dress code mentioned, dress formally, conservatively, and in dark colors. Watch this video clip for more information about how to behave at a funeral.
