PLEASE DO NOT CHAT FOR 30 MIN TO THE FAMILY OF THE DECEASED DURING VISITATION THIS IS NEITHER THE TIME NOR PLACE FOR SUCH THINGS, TELL THEM "YOUR SORRY FOR THEIR LOSS AND YOU WILL SPEAK TO THEM LATER", IN MOST CASES THERE ARE MANY OTHER PEOPLE BEHIND YOU WAITING TO VIEW THE DECEASED AND SPEAK TO THE FAMILY AS WELL, TO ME THIS IS THE MOST RUDE THING TO DO AT FUNERALS/VISITATIONS.
