One of the things that strikes me is how death and young people is handled now compared to earlier times. I can remember having to kiss my maternal grandfather on the cheek while he lay in the coffin when I was in 3rd grade. I am suer that was a hold over from the 1930's when the viewing was in the parlour in the family home.

These days someone would be horrified at this expected behavior.
