Attending an X Husbands Funeral Service

Would it be appropriate to attend the service of her X husband. That is what my friend ask me. They have been divorced many years and are on fairly good terms. He has a terminal illness. She is the Mother of his 3 children, who are all grown.

well that would be a personal decision. Death has a way of allowing people with differences to let go, then at the same time it has a way of bringing out anger because it is so unnatural. People must be allowed to grieve and go thru the grieviing process regardless of their relationship with the person. It allows some to even come to closure. The living also must go on living. Living with their feelings, themselves. So with genuine hearts we do what we know is right. Be patient if others do not immediately accept your presence as they themselves are grieving. May you be comforted at this time and may you have peace. I send my condolence. I am married to a wonderful man, however, he was previously married and had children from that union. If he died, I would accept the presence of others no matter how difficult it would seem. This is what the love of God means. God is love. He that does not love, does not know God.
(1 John 4:8) May you be at peace.
