During the grieving process for a death, it is difficult to face the feelings of loneliness, fear, frustration and helplessness. Many people begin to question the event. They wonder why this had to happen and they can begin to blame themselves or to reproach the deceased why he left them alone.
Specialists in psychology recommend deciding what to do with the deceased’s ashes before the time of cremation arrives. The reason is to avoid psychological complications and other disorders in the family, because sometimes they may want to keep them at home and take them everywhere as a jewel.
It is natural to die. It’s part of life. Understanding it is difficult, hard and sad. However, it is the reality: we live to die someday. Given this irremediable fact it is important to be realistic, because it is the only way to understand what happens when a loved one dies.
When a death occurs each family, member expresses pain and grieves in a particular way. They may not communicate with each other as they used to due to the event. However, communication is fundamental to recover harmony in the environment and overcome death.
The habit of watching over those who have died goes back to medieval times. At that time the relatives used to keep the body for an average of three days at home, without the anti-decomposition preparation we know today.
