Jay, you truly are an absolute idiot! To say nothing is necessary for the death of a friend's father is incorrect. Why do you think Sympathy cards are available? At the very least sending a note of condolences to one's friend or relative is in order. An added gift would be flowers to the funeral homer  church if this is where the viewing is.

Also, a donation to a charity close to the deceased is an added plus.
