Would it be improper to attend the wake of and old girlfriend’s dad whom I have not seen in forty years?
–Jason, T., Woonsocket. RI
The fact that you’re asking means you want to attend, but feel awkward having not seen the deceased in a long time. You would be attending his wake in support of the deceased’s family and because you liked and respected him. Wakes can be a social occasion and an opportunity to catch up with old friends and acquaintances. If your gut tells you to go, then attend, because it would not be improper.
