Why would you attend a funeral?
If you do not like a person, openly so. Would you still attend their funeral? I know there are many people who as yet don't understand anything truthful about life, because they don't want to. Someone will kill you and come to your funeral . Tell me about you!
There are definite miserables souls out there. However, the response to people who drive our life insane; may not be to show them the same treatment. We should have some restraint. If its a coworker that drove you insane and you know that many of your coworkers would attend. There is no reason in hating someone that you did not love in the first place.
You are a lot bigger than you think. Its common courtesy to show some respect if you know them well. However, if you were the one who caused them much grief in their life. I would suggest not attending since you may irritate those whom know of your relationship with the person who is now dead. The last thing that you would want is to have a confrontation at the funeral.
However, personally, I have no qualms about being around people who hate me, unless of course, I have made a deliberate attempt to ruin their life. If I have not done anything purposefully and people are just annoyed because I am having a good turn of fortune. Then, I would not worry about that. Its more of their problem than yours. You should not take ownership for the ill feelings of others. Hope this advice helps. Great question by the way. Thanks.
That is hard question to answer and would depend upon the circumstances surrounding their death. I would still offer my sympathy to the family (if possible) and hope that the departed was at peace with God.
i would not attend the funeral. at this point there is no need. Now if there was an opportunity to reconcile and forgive there is a possibility I would attend.
I would not attend a funeral for a person that I don't like. I suppose that some people go simply out of spite.

Why are so many people selfish and mean, even to family members?Maybe I shouldn't be surprised any more, but why are so many family members selfish and hurtful to other family members? Life is precious, and flying by, and even if someone isn't your favorite person, why can't more just be kind...

My short answer is: No? I mean not as a guest or even as clergy. I would only be found there if I had to cover the story as a journalist or protect life and property as a policeman.Come on over and vote?<snipped link>

Would you find it unacceptable for someone to request no funeral, someone you loved? I don't think I would want to put my kids, family, and friends to the expense, disruption, and awfulness of a funeral but would that be 'cheating' them somehow? If they're going to come see me, I'd prefer it to be...
