Funeral Etiquette

I recently got a call from a friend I had not seen in five years and spoken to about twice a year, over the past five. His father had passed and he was calling to let me know about the funeral. I am in New York and the funeral is in Los Angeles. Not to sound like a horrible person, but the days of jumping on a plane are just not what they used to be. Plus I would have to take off work. So my question is - if the person has family and a partner, is it cold for me to feel like I don''t need to attend.\ \ TIA

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
