Death Rituals

Death rituals are as old as culture if not older. Though specific rituals differ from region to region, religion to religion, there is a shared purpose for performing them:
  1. to acknowledge loss
  2. to mourn and grieve
  3. to give loved ones and the community a chance to reflect, remember and validate the deceased's life
  4. to give a last rite of passage.

What type of rituals does your family observe? Feel free to leave a comment and share with others.
