Hey all, I need some advice!
At work yesterday we found out that the remaining founder of the business has passed away. I have heard that the current directors (my bosses) are planning to close the business on the day of the funeral.
My Dilemma is this: having never (not once even in passing) met this woman, should I feel obligated to attend? I know a lot of my colleagues will be attending as they worked under her and knew her well. As a person I have NEVER met I feel that is disrespectful to sit at a funeral knowing everyone around you is grieving and uniting in their loss and sharing memories, when I have nothing to contribute?!
Does anyone have any thoughts, I REALLY neee some help on this one. Please comment below with your thoughts if it was you in my place. All opinions welcome!
