...uh.... Just let me just light this incense, my white candle ...and shall

Death is the crux and pillar of religious belief. Spiritual beliefs are
mostly to either comfort or justify the notion of death. : - )

"She's in a much better place", Immortality of the soul, journeys to various
spirit lands, heaven, a long sleep, white light, kingdom come, Judgment Day,
Valhalla, Nirvana....

Not bad... I feel better now...

On to oblivion!
