As humans, we are sentimental creatures. Of all the emotions we feel, the pain of loss is one of the most intense. Usually death deprives us of our ability to say goodbye gracefully. Since time immemorial, we have invented ways of saying goodbye to those we know will never come back.
The rituals we have around death, and the dead, help us deal with this continuation between life and death. They help bridge the generation gap. They help us find closure and help us to continue with life.
