Grief is a Funny Thing... said...

I am disappointed to read that Billy in particular will disrespect the wishes of Drew's family by crashing their funeral for Drew. I am a Funeral Director/Embalmer by trade and whether or not you agree with a family choosing to hold a private funeral, I can't imagine a good reason to disrespect that choice. Hold your own memorial service, or take the opportunity to visit the deceased's grave to pay respects. I can't imagine that as a vicar, Billy wouldn't be able to look past his own feelings in this situation because he essentially is a stranger to these folks (despite the past intensity of his relationship with Drew, why haven't they kept closer contact over the years?).

I agree. If Drew had really wanted Billy there the logical thing would have been to put him in charge of the funeral arrangements. I have no doubt that Drew's family is being bigoted but this is what happens when you don't plan adequately. Your family gets the right to act on your behalf by default.

Drew rather ran out of time though, didn't he? He knew he didn't have long, but the end came with alarming suddenness. It may transpire that he left instructions that Summer should not be left with his parents.

What I find very odd is that there was't a bunch of other gay friends at the church expecting to pay their last respects. The gay community is normally very supportive in situations like this, where a homophobic family stamps its foot.
