Of course you are emotional about this request of your friend.  You must do what you are comfortable with doing.  Being present is not an obligation, nor is it your responsibility.   I couldnt participate, but thats just me.  I would choose to say my goodbyes and express my love and leave, the day before.  I think I would go to a church or some other beautiful peaceful place, at the designated time, and just pray for her.  Im sorry about your dear friend.  Take care of yourself.
