So my grandpa passed away and his funeral is upcoming. We knew he was not in the best health so a few weeks ago I traveled back home across the country to see him and spend some time with him and my grandma. I figured that if I can get some time off from graduate school I would like to chance to see him while he was still around rather than only for his funeral. However, a few of my family wants me to travel back for his funeral and are talking about me flying in the night before, attending the funeral, and flying back the same night.
A part of me would like to be there, but it is not easy to get time off in my position, especially since I took time to travel back. Additionally, I would have to miss a wedding of a friend from my school if I do so and I would feel bad to miss it.
Any thoughts on this?
