At some time during our lives, death will touch and affect us all. Arranging a funeral will fall to a family member or close friend and can cause much pain and grief. It can change our lives in many ways.
Despite its inevitability, death is rarely discussed and as a result, death and its consequences are often not understood. While no one wants to dwell on the subject, some understanding of death can help us prepare for its eventuality. This includes having a basic knowledge of how to cope with the practicalities associated with death and what to do when someone dies.
