Death is a natural part of life, a time to celebrate what the individual was and their life. Mournin

Death should be celebrated as a part of life. The empty vassal you see is a reminder of what the person was, not what they are or even what the deceased was to everyone around them. Funerals just remind everyone that the dead will no longer be what they were to their survivors. its selfish, celebrate the dead, everything about them, remember and be happy. Dont mourn over your loss, celebrate their life.

While the person's body has expires in death. The spirit lives on. How? Whether or not spirit exists is irrelevant. The person's spirit lives on through the thoughts and prayers of everyone this person means something to. Sadness for the loss is inevitable. But the idea of mourning is to celebrate all that the person was when he/she was alive. If the person meant nothing to you. You wouldnt be celebrating or sad for the deased, right? In conclusion, death is celebration of a well lived life.

If it is suicide, celebrate. The deceased found solace in death. If it is homicide, mourn- it was not their choice. If it was fate, accept it. They're gone... just one character absent from the world.

Live with it, get on with it, it happens to the best of us.

Depends on who died. We celebrated when saddam died and we mourned mother theresa.

Whether death is a time for mourning and sadness, or a time of great joy and elation, kinda depends on who died.

What a shame that we don't get to vote for "both"--the ability to have mixed feelings is part of what makes us human.

Death is a hard time for everyone! When someone in your life is taken away forever you shouldnt be happy because you will never be able to cry, talk, see, or hear that person again. But it is a time to recognize everything that that person did in there life!
