Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because no one was coming to his funeral. He called around to different people and not one person was planning on attending the funeral. Then Jays father came to his house and Nick felt too comitted to leave.

Nick decided to take care of Gatsby's funeral because he knew him enough to know that he would want that, also nobody else took a stand or cared enough to do anything about it. He tried telling people to go, but no one would attend.

Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because no one else would. Everyone knew that Gatsby is dead, but nobdy really cares, they feel bad but the dont feel the need to goto his funeral. No one was close to Gatsby beside his father.

Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because he saw it as his responsibility to do so. Nick and Gatbsy were friends. Nick cared for Gatsby and when he saw that no one else was going to take action in taking care of his funeral Nick did it. No one really knew Gatsby but if there was anyone he was close to it was Nick and he felt like he owed it to Gatsby to take care of him.

Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because he felt that it was in his hands, since nobody else was going to. He did not know if Gatsby had any family around and when he tries contacting them, he is unable to reach them. Nick knows Gatsby would want a nice funeral and wants to do this for him. It was a really thoughtful thing of Nick to do.

Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because he was his only known friend. Despite what ever Nick thought of Gatsby he thought he was nice and kind of felt pity for him. Nick did feel something for Gatsby snd he was his friend. Also he knew that no one else would attend.

I agree with denis and Carolina, Nick took over Gatsby's funeral because no one showed consent. Nick also knew how to set it up the way Gatsby would have had it.

Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because he and gatsby spent alot of time together. Because gatsby did not have many close friends or family, nick felt it was the right thing to do.

Nick took care of Gasby's funeral because he became one of his good friends and knew that no one else would help. I believe he wanted to plan the funeral as a last tribute to his friend JAy Gatsby and to show everyone that he was a good person.

Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because no one else wanted to take care or take part in it. He also did it because he knew that he was an important part of Gatsby's life, so he was taking care of it as a friend.

Nick took care of Gatsby funeral because for one he was one of gatsby's only friends so he felt somewhat required to do it. ALso he had grown close to Gatsby and wanted to make sure he got the burial he deserved.

Nick took care of Gatsby's funeral because there was no one else to do it and Nick was the closest friend of Gatsby. He tried to call people to come to the funeral but no one could be bothered with it. Gatsby was so generous and threw parties for people. He genuinely cared for others but his death made me realize that no one appreciated what he did. When it came down to it, Nick was his only true friend and he was the best person to be in charge of the funeral because he truly cared about Gatsby.
