chevydeuce: the place I work gives 3 days bereavement pay for deaths in the immediate family (on top of whatever vacation/sick days you want to take) and 5 days if the dead family member services are going to be more than 350 miles away....a former co-worker had a brother in Arkansas that died (we're in California), so he took the 5 days bereavement, he didn't travel to Arkansas for the funeral mind, he just took the 5 days off....I thought that was a little odd.

We all grieve in our own way, I grieve with whiskey and hookers, it's a healing process.
