Funerals are never going to be easy.
But one woman divided opinion online after kicking her dad's secret girlfriend out from his memorial.
Posting anonymously on Reddit, she explained how she found out about the relationship two years after he started dating.
It all happened when she saw text messages on his phones, the Irish Mirror reports.
The dad never spoke about his girlfriend Pam or introduced her to his daughter, leaving them to meet for the first time at his funeral.
She said: "I was 'officially' told about Pam when I collected my dad's office things after he died, and a large photo of her was there.
"His colleagues were stunned I didn't know. I threw that photo away right there."
She added: "I made all the funeral arrangements.
"Pam tried contacting dad's phone – I assume she saw all the posts on his Facebook and the funeral date online.
"I never responded to her. Yet before his wake started, Pam and her family showed up – and planned to be a part of the services!
"I came in for the wake, and she and her three sons, daughters-in-law, and grandkids were there talking with some of his friends.
"She's known them all for 3-4 years!"

The daughter was asked by the funeral directors and guests why she hadn't invited Pam, as she said she didn't know about her.
But Pam claimed the daughter had "refused" to meet her.
She added: "I was floored. The funeral people asked me why I didn't include her since she's his significant other.
"I told them right in front of everyone that I've lived with my dad over the last five years and I never met or knew her.
"At this point, Pam got out of the provided chair and tried to play it cool by saying 'Oh come now!' while pulling me aside to 'chat'."
She said: "During this chat, she told me 'You're going to embarrass yourself and dad if you don't just keep it together.
"'I can't believe you refused to meet me until now but that was your choice. Now let's get through this and figure it out later'."
The woman said she had "lost it", then ended up kicking Pam and her family out of the service.
People on Reddit were stunned by her reaction, saying the "real a**hole* is her dad.
They added: "He told Pam you didn't want to meet, he didn't tell you that she exists, and then he dies and leaves you to sort it out?"
Meanwhile, another claimed the woman was rude to someone who was clearly important to her dad.
