custom Christians follow
Someone I know passed away recently.
Last rites have been performed, and there will
be a memorial service soon.
The deceased was a Christian.
My qn is: is it alright to give a token sum at the memorial service or will the family view it was bad luck since funeral, etc is over already.
Also - is it alright to give $300?
Was thinking of $400, but then 4 is supposed to be unlucky?

Well, if you are talking about the money which Chinese call 'Bai Jin' they usually give in odd numbers for such occasions. Since they are christians I dun think they will mind whatever that you give lah.... be it odd or even.
