A friend of ours died recently. We just got the invitation to the "Celebration of his Life": A big party with a New Orleans jazz band, culminating with a fireworks display where they shoot his ashes into the sky in a big bottle-rocket.

I like that - "A Celebration of Life". A person is not defined by the fact that he died. I hate observing the day of a person's death. Why not focus on what they did while they're alive? Death was not their greatest accomplishment!

I agree. That is how many of our people (american indians) honor someone's passing. We celebrate their life as opposed to their death. Not to say we do not mourn but we do not focus on the mourning.

The elder that gave me away at my wedding passed a bit over a year ago and we had a celebration of life for him with a powwow...it was a weekend celebration.
