I've just seen a horrendous situation. The current wife (now widow) of a man who had minor children insisted that the mother (ex-wife) not be allowed to attend the services, which means that the minor children, who had almost no relationship with dad's side of the family (not their choice or their mom's choice) have no support at their father's funeral. Their is also an adult child, but 22 and having your own anger and despair to deal with makes that an uncertain support.
