Cultures across the world have different traditions when it comes to funerals, from elaborate ceremonies to days of fasting. Some cultures feel a deep sorrow for the loss of a loved one while others celebrate the life of the deceased and the special times that were shared. Some religions urge friends and family to send flowers to the gravesite as a sign of respect, while other religions actually see this gesture as a sign of disrespect.
