“It is interesting to see how often people try to avoid staying with the deceased.  This has to do with their being afraid of thinking about death. In fact, they are taking an entirely incorrect approach.  A normal Christian should strive to often follow King Solomon’s advice that  “It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting…” (Ecc. 7: 2).”
