“Every society has its own customs and traditions to mourn. Funeral ceremonies, prayers, visits to the house of mourning, ceremonies at regular intervals (such as seven, forty, fifty-two, etc.) help to accept death, express emotions, and complete the unfinished issues about the deceased. The lost person eventually accepts the reality of death, but still internally maintains a relationship with the lost person. There are symbolic ways for this: for example, visiting the cemetery, fulfilling wills, using the deceased's belongings. A healthy mourning process is completed when a person establishes new and lasting bonds in his relationship with the lost person.
