Death of a Salesman

Did Bernard attend Willy Loman's funeral? (Death of a Salesman)

I don't know because of conflicting evidence. Bernard says nothing at the funeral, implying his absence, but in the stage directions, he is present. Also, how can he be there when he left earlier in the day for Washington to argue in Supreme Court? I have had conflicting reports. To reference, (Act two, last stage direction, Requiem, and Act two, where Bernard leaves for Washington and Willy is left to talk with Charley.

No, he did not attend. Only Willy's family and Charley are at his funeral.
