    Only 2 as far as I know. My grandparents on my mother's side. My dad's father died before I was born, and his mother died just after I was born. So I'm guessing my parents didn't take me to the funeral.

    None. My grandad died when I was 10 from pancreatic cancer. My parents wouldn't even let me visit him in hospital they told me at the time that children weren't allowed to visit in hospitals and I wasn't allowed to his funeral to say bye as they said funerals weren't nice places to be especially for children. In my mind I think I was denied the chance to say goodbye to my own grandad but then I think my mum wanted me to remember my grandad how he was before cancer took him away and made him very ill

    I've been to 2, my grandma's and my great uncle's. Both were horrible, didn't cope well at all, especially at the first, I lost it as soon as we left the house..
    Neither were open coffin, I can't really imagine how I'd react to that, it must be awful

    3. both grandparents, and a school friend who died of leukemia. All were really hard to be honest... I hate crying in front of people but I always do. the worst part is seeing how hard it is on other people that were even closer to them than you were.

    I don't know how I would cope if any of my parents died. I feel like it would completely break me, it'd be the only thing I would think about constantly.
    I thought it would too, it was all I thought about when she was ill. I think when it does happen you function on auto-pilot for a while, so that sort of gets you through. And then gradually you start to have more 'good' days, and the bad times get less often - you never ever forget, but it goes to the back of your mind for a while, you remember the happier times more, and you realise you can be happy again and that that's ok. If I sit and think about it it makes me sad (and I write about it a lot I think), and sometimes it just suddenly hits you and it's very intense, but there are more good times. There are still bad days, but you know they'll pass, if that makes sense.
