Q: I need to attend a viewing for the sister of a friend at work. I never met the sister. Is there an appropriate time that one must spend at the viewing? It is in another town an hour away from where I live so it could be a long night. Is 20 minutes too short of a time to pay your respects?
A: No, you don’t need stay more than a few minutes to pay your respects, but it is important to sign the guest register so that the family will know you were present.
