Is the following expression grammatically correct?
"When a family member dies, you should see the dead body. It helps closure."
I am not a teacher, but I am a native speaker.
"When a family member dies, you should see the dead body. It helps you get closure."
I hope this helps!
EDIT: Also, you may want to leave out "dead" in the first sentence. When we talk about a dead family member, we usually just say "the body" out of respect. If you wanted the sentence to be very polite and respectful, you may want to say "you should go to the wake". The "wake" is the day before the funeral, when everyone can view the body.
