essbee iwould go just as sign of respect and support but only if u feel up to it. Even if u were not best friends obviously you got on to a degree so I would go myself.

I find that usually relatives at funeral are keen for as many people who cared about them as possible attend. It is nice and comforting to see that she was liked and loved. So I would worry only about how you feel you could cope with it. You are in a position to choose. HTH.

only go if you feel up to it essbee, don't feel that you should if it will bring you down.

I think I would go (and sit at the back so I could make a hasty getaway if it all got a bit much iykwim) I blubbed like a maniac at a funeral a couple of months ago and felt pretty bad at the time but ultimately am glad I went.

Agree with Flossam. Poor family. I had pre-eclampsia and always thought you were out of the woods once you'd had your baby. How wrong I was.

Go, and if it gets too much you can always leave. Better than sitting at home thinking 'If only I'd gone'

Go essbee.

If you can't face it tomorrow then fair enough.

Like the others have said - if you feel up to it, then go (the back sounds a good plan). The more people who show they care, the better - the family will know how many lives their child touched.
