"Grieving the loss of a loved one, friend or colleague is an important process - one that can be made unnecessarily awkward if you're not familiar with the religious tradition in which the grieving tradition takes place, and end up feeling uncertain about how to behave. You want to be sure that you know what to do and what to expect. There's no need to enter an unfamiliar atmosphere unprepared, wondering: Are flowers appropriate? Is there anything I need to avoid doing or saying? What does this faith believe about death? What should I wear? What is the appropriate behavior of viewing the body?"
