Did Bernie Madoff go to his son’s funeral?

Bernie Madoff was not allowed to attend his son’s funeral due to his incarceration. Mark Madoff committed suicide in December 2010, while his father was serving his prison sentence. At the time, Madoff was being held in the Butner Federal Correctional Complex in North Carolina, and prison officials did not allow him to attend the funeral service in New York. Instead, Madoff was allowed to speak with his wife and other family members over the phone, and they reportedly held a private ceremony for Mark in the days following his death.
