If I were an actor, I sure would go to the funeral; he lost his life doing something he enjoyed, but he did it for you........I think it'd show lots of respect for him and the family would appreciate it, I'm sure.......it's the right thing to do!!
Of course I would ...<br />
That person was there to do something for YOU.<br />
He stepped in and filled your shoes to make You look good..
Out of respect of the family I would goto his funeral. Whether or not we were close. (Kinda reminds me of the "The Twilight Zone/Vic Morrow" accident)
I think I would go if I can get out of work commitments or send something.
